fastjet has revealed its plans to launch the only direct air link between Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and Entebbe in Uganda, bringing the airline’s international routes to four in total.
Flights will operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 16 September and 29 September, on which date fastjet will begin offering the service four times weekly.
“fastjet is delighted with this opportunity to enter the Ugandan market and the support it has received from the Ugandan government and authorities,” remarked Ed Winter, fastjet CEO. “We very much look forward to commencing flights and hope this is the beginning of a wider fastjet network from Entebbe.”
fastjet’s other international routes fly from Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg, Lusaka and Harare, whilst the airline’s domestic network in Tanzania includes services to Mwanza, Kilimanjaro and Mbeya.
