Brand Licence - 7 February 2013

fastjet plc

("fastjet" or the "Company")

Brand Licence

In response to recent misleading press reports, David Lenigas, Chairman of fastjet plc and Chairman of Five Forty Aviation Limited (Kenya) ("Fly540 Kenya"), confirms that there is no valid Brand Licence Agreements, Franchise Agreements or Management Agreements between Fly540 Kenya and Fastjet or any other Fly540 associated Companies in Africa.

Statements made by Don Smith from Kenya, a director of Fly540 Kenya, suggesting he has the right to withdraw the Brand are absolutely wrong and without foundation. The Board of Directors of Fly540 Kenya has never met to even consider this issue.

fastjet wishes to advise the media and our passengers who fly with us throughout Africa in either a fastjet plane, Fly540 plane or Fly540 Africa plane, that we are looking forward to expanding our Low Cost Airline throughout the African Continent.
