New low-cost African airline FastJet.com to launch flights in October 2012

update (09 Aug 2012): According to Wolfganghthome's Blog, "representatives of one section of shareholders [of Fly540] apparently put the brakes on any future developments vis a vis the planned rebranding, until questions on the present legal cases and the implications for the company have been resolved to their satisfaction."

Africa's new low-cost carrier FastJet.com, operating under a brand licence agreement with EasyGroup Holdings and Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of leading low-cost airline easyJet, will commence flights in October 2012. The airline has chosen the Airbus A319 as its launch aircraft and is expecting to carry 250.000 per year with each 156-seater aircraft. Fastjet will operate from Kenya and Tanzania in East Africa, Angola in Southern Africa and Ghana in West Africa.
