Fastjet finally launches connecting flight service
New brooms clearly sweep better, as Fastjet, now under the 'command' of new CEO Nico Bezuidenhout, has launched a long overdue measure, making flights within Tanzania and beyond 'connectable'.
In the past, the passengers had to book every flight segment separately and, when reaching the connection point, collect their bags and then check in again - an exercise which frustrated many passengers.
Today Fastjet has finally announced in Tanzania connecting flights can now be booked under one ticket and one PNR / booking number, giving travelers the opportunity to book from Mbeya to Mwanza or Kilimanjaro without going through the hassle of multiple check ins.
The announcement, another key change implemented since Nico's arrival, opens up convenient travel on to Johannesburg, Lilongwe, Lusaka, Harare and also to and from Entebbe and Nairobi as long as the flights route via Dar es Salaam - the hub airport of Fastjet Tanzania.
This brings travel with Fastjet in line with other airlines, including low cost carriers in a move which is aimed to improve on brand loyalty and provide passengers with a service which has been asked for by them.
