Lol, they better have good plans for ATR,
So that's what the 3 ATR are for!!
Hillwi, thanks for the confirmation. Good to see (some) progress, however small!
The deployment of the ATRs will be the next big news....
fatherelmer, yes, the Maputo-Biera route has been increased to 2 return flights 6 days of the week, and I think the Maputo-Tete route has an additional return flight per week, although still does not operate every day.
....saw an interesting tweet that suggested that the schedule (frequency rather than routes) may have increased in Mozambique, can anyone confirm???
Good news if true.
E190 right Aircraft for Africa

That`s very good to hear, Fjetcrazy. They must`ve read my weekend post below!!
They finally acknowledge and apologies on their twitter feed better late then NEVER, a very upset customer actually thanked them for acknowledgement of departing EIGHT hours late, and they have responded to every complaint
Buxton1, very true, there was an update with limited financial information, and was bad regarding cash being locked up. There is no excuse for getting into this position, what has their strategy been regarding cash in Zimbabwe. How did they get themselves into this position? Was it just plain ignorance or was there some change in financial regulations in Zimbabwe since they started?
For me, what I’m most interested in financially is Cost Per ASK. Nico has staked his reputation at fastjet, to a great extent, on reducing this. His fleet change was at huge expense in order to reduce costs. I, for one, will be judging his performance mainly on his ability to have significantly reduced this.
So sad to see the bad old days of �Winter� returning, eh? What happened to Nico�s promising reassurances of running an airline properly? Is fastjet just impossible for management to get to grips with, even after more than five years?
Our customers are fuming this morning, last night facing five hour delays NO updates/ communication is annoying them more than the delay itself.
The last RNS provided some financial info certainly the cash situation was not good
With cash locked up i Zimbabwie
No, B787. Had I known, I would have gladly revealed it. But on the basis that the AGM has been held in late June in the last three years, I considered that to be �upcoming�!
“upcoming AGM” - last year it was on 30th June. I couldn’t find a date for this year. Looks like Nico is witholding financial information from shareholders as long as possible so I expected the AGM to have been delayed until after 2017 results are published. Do you have a date for this tear’s AGM?
Wouldn�t you think such news was just about big enough to push the share price up a tad? I suppose even if it was, the market-makers need the `pudding` to supply the `proof` they inevitably demand. And understandably so.
In the meantime, I look forward to such proof being provided by the `growth in connecting...traffic volumes` expected by Nico and perhaps even hearing of it from the horse�s mouth himself at the upcoming AGM.
Two A330 jets and four regional jets purchased to revive Air Uganda
Following its migration to its new reservation platform, Fastjet has concluded a refreshed interline agreement with Emirates.
The agreement will see Fastjet�s inventory available, in conjunction with Emirates inventory, through the Global Distribution System(s) Amadeus and Travelport and is expected to stimulate onward connecting traffic throughout Fastjet's network in East and Southern Africa. Both airlines share common markets in Tanzania, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Zambia.
Fastjet, Emirates interline agreement to stimulate future traffic connections
Interline agreements enable travel for passengers who require flights with more than one airline to complete their full journey. "The agreement is historic for Fastjet. Fastjet has become the first African low-fare airline to engage with major global airline brands," says chief executive Nico Bezuidenhout.
Bezuidenhout adds that beyond the expected growth in connecting inbound traffic volumes, the enablement of trade and tourism will be significant: "Fastjet connects international hubs with major urban centres in our markets; in Tanzania, for example, travellers would be able to seamlessly connect between Dar es Salaam and Mwanza, Kilimanjaro and Mbeya all of which support various industry and tourism nodes."
would increase the pax numbers by about 40% if they can fill the planes
That would make sense to send the ER5s back and relace them with the ATR
Perhaps the ATR are a natural expansion for Zim replacement for ERJ
Honestly have no idea Regards deployment of the Atrs , kigoma is not being held up by TCCA but is being held up on certification of E190 into kigoma it would literally be on limits to max
Fjetcrazy how are we going to utiize the three new planes?
Maybe one is for Bulaway
A second for kigoma,Dodoma and another in Tanzania
The third ?
It�s very sad indeed, certainly explains why our LUN HRE/ HRE LUN never came to fruition, over in Zimbabwe we can�t get the Bulawayo ( although i am hearing we almost there ) meanwhile whilst Air Zimbabwe are not in a position to expand , other national carriers are doing just that under fifth freedom rights
