Africa’s new low-cost carrier Fastjet is set to launch commercial operations tomorrow.

Fastjet’s first Airbus A319 twin jet is stationed at the airline’s inaugural base at Dar es Salaam (DAR), Tanzania, and has received operating approval from the Tanzanian Civil Aviation Authority. Two more aircraft are due to arrive in time for the launch of the airline’s first scheduled flights. The first two destinations to be served from DAR are Kilimanjaro and Mwanza.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
