FastJet Passenger Statistics for June 2013

Ed Winter, Chief Executive Officer of fastjet said:  "We continue to grow in popularity, performance and revenue.   As reported recently, June revenue in Tanzania exceeded $2.2m, which is a 22% increase on the previous month. Fastjet load factors for the month grew from 68% to 78%, with yield per seat also growing substantially.

 Also as previously announced, in June fastjet carried its 200,000th paying passenger including infants.

 Additionally we can announce that we have today received our Foreign Operator Permit from the South African Department of Transport. This means that the final administrative hurdle has been overcome so are confident that the important and popular  Dar es Salaam to Johannesburg route will be on sale  soon.

  We believe we are well on the way to becoming the first pan African low cost carrier."
