How to book Freighty or Bucket of Fish

When you need to travel with a lot more luggage, or freshly caught fish, travel fastjet. Here's what you need to know.

Booking Freighty

If you need to fly with lots of luggage, book freighty. With it you have the option to check in more than the standard pre-booked baggage allowance, available on all our routes. It is ideal for traders and families.

You can only pre-book your 69 kg allowance online, through our Call Centre or at a fastjet shop. 

If you’re travelling with more than one person on a booking, you can combine your baggage allowance together, as long as any one case does not exceed 32 kg in weight. There is no size restrictions on checked/hold baggage.

Important things to note

  • No more than three (3) items of baggage can be checked in and no individual item can weigh more than 32 kg. Freighty is only available when pre-booking.

  • No excess baggage is applicable and baggage weighing over 69 kg will not be accepted for carriage.

  • As the 69 kg is checked in and considered checked baggage, rules and regulations with regards to the carriage of dangerous objects or liquids still apply. See our terms and conditions for more information.


Book your Bucket of Fish

Save yourself time and money by pre-booking your fish buckets today.

  • You can take up to 23 kg of delicious fish home with you.

  • Pre-book online or in a fastjet store and pay less than you would at the airport.

  • Make sure that you shrink wrap the fish and place it in a sealed container.


Bucket of fish is only available on the Mwanza/Dar es Salaam route. The bucket of fish will be charged according to our excess weight rate per kilo.
