We realise that our on-board menu might not appeal to every traveller. As a result we do allow you to bring your own food and drink on board. Here’s what you need to know about what can be consumed on board and what cannot.


Alcohol bought in the airside departure lounge may be carried into the cabin of the aircraft, provided

• it is unopened and remains unopened for the duration of your travel with fastjet

• the alcohol-by-volume is lower than 70% (abv), and

• it is packed in a duty free shopping bag or in your hand baggage.

Only alcohol offered to you by a fastjet cabin crew may be consumed on board the aircraft. It is strictly forbidden to consume alcoholic beverages bought outside the aircraft. To do so may result in you facing prosecution.


Food and drink

Although we offer a complimentary snack, you may bring your own refreshments into our aircraft cabins. We also allow you to bring hot drinks bought at the airport on board, provided it has a lid. 

Size limit

There is a 100 ml limit for all liquid food, such as soup or custard. Security will confiscate any item that exceeds this amount. However, having said that, this limit does not apply to baby food or milk, but airport security may ask you to taste it at the bag search area.

Please note that different countries have different regulations about importing food and drink, so make sure you check the rules for your destination.


Fresh produce and perishables

The transportation of perishables such as fruit and, vegetables is permitted on domestic flights within Zimbabwe ONLY as part of your checked baggage allowance (up to 23 kg).

Fresh produce and perishables are carried at your own risk.

Please note that perishables will not be carried in the event that toxic insecticides have been used.
