fastjet and Emirates have signed a sales and distribution contract which will enable Emirates' passengers access to fastjet's growing route network across East and Southern Africa.
Emirates passengers will be able to book fastjet tickets through all of Emirates' sales channels using a bespoke link between Emirates’ and fastjet’s reservations system.
The partnership will benefit both fastjet and Emirates with greater passenger traffic and will give travellers in Africa the opportunity to connect to the rest of the world through Emirates' Dubai hub with fastjet providing passengers from African towns and cities.
fastjet chief commercial officer Richard Bodin, commented, "We are absolutely delighted to be working with such a highly regarded and successful airline. Not only will it allow us access to the millions of passengers that Emirates carries, it is also a significant validation of our operation, service and proven low-cost model. We look forward to greeting Emirates passengers on board our aircraft."
