Fastjet to delay the launch of Dar Es Salaam <> Johannesburg operations

update (03 Oct 2013): According to the South African Department of Transport (DoT), the delay was caused by Fastjet originally having submitted all of its documents under the name "Fly540 Tanzania", operating as Fastjet. In August, however, the airline's name was officially changed to "Fastjet Airlines Tanzania". Fastjet now has to submit certain new documents reflecting the new name to get the OK form the DOT to launch flights between Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) and Johannesburg (South Africa).

African low-cost carrier Fastjet announced that it had to postpone the launch of its first international service between Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania) and Johannesburg (South Africa). The operations between the two destinations were scheduled to start from 27 Sept 2013. Due to unexpected administrative delays caused by the South African Department of Transport, the airline is now forced to delay the flights, but Fastjet is confident that it will be operating on this service by mid-October 2013. All passengers affected by this delay will receive a full refund and assistance with re-booking a complimentary seat to fly within the next month. Please contact Fastjet for further information.
