Fastjet suspends flights to Malawi!

Pan-African low cost airline Fastjet has suspended its services between Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR) in Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Lilongwe International Airport (LLW) in Lilongwe in Malawi with with immediate effect. According to the airline, the major reason for withdrawing from Malawi is the depreciation of the Malawian currency (kwacha) and the unwillingness of Malawi's government to grant Fastjet an 8th freedom cabotage traffic right for flights between Lilongwe and Blantyre despite earlier assurances they would be granted.
