About Fastjet

fastjet is a low-cost carrier group operating in Africa but based at London Gatwick Airport in the United Kingdom. It is publicly traded on the London Stock Exchange and is partially owned by EasyGroup, the parent company of easyJet. It flys from operating centres at Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam and Harare International Airport. It also has subsidiaries operating in Tanzania and in Zimbabwe that have a combined fleet of 5 aircraft, all of which are Airbus A319s.

fastjet currently serves 12 African locations in 7 different countries. These destinations are Kilimanjaro International Airport, Mwanza Airport, Abeid Amani Karume International Airport and Songwe Airport in Tanzania, Entebbe International Airport in Uganda, OR Tambo International Airport in South Africa, Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Zambia, Prince Said Ibrahim International Airport in Comoros, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya and Victoria Falls Airport in Zimbabwe. It does not have any codeshare agreements in operation and is not an airline alliance member.

Online check-in

Passengers are not currently able to check in online for fastjet flights. The airline however does offer airport check-in counters for passengers to check in at. To be able to check in for their flight, passengers will need a valid passport and any relevant visas for their destination country. For flights to South Africa, passengers under 18 years of age are required to show an original birth certificate. These counters are open starting from 2 hours before a flight is scheduled to take off and remain open for passengers to check in until 40 minutes before departure. The airline will turn away any passengers who try to check in less than 40 minutes before their flight.

Hand luggage allowance

Each passenger on a fastjet flight is entitled to 1 piece of hand luggage. This may be taken into the aircraft's cabin as long as it is no larger than 56 x 45 x 25 cm. The airline has no limit on the weight of hand luggage, as long as it is within the size limit and passengers are able to place their hand luggage into the overhead storage compartment without help from someone else. The exception to this is on flights to or from South Africa, where hand luggage cannot weigh more than 7 kg and must be smaller than 56 x 36 x 23 cm. Infants are not provided with any hand luggage allowance.

Checked baggage allowance

fastjet flight tickets do not include any checked luggage allowance. This is an optional extra with the airline and can be added for a fee, either during booking or later on. This can also be paid for at the airport but in that case will cost more than if it is pre-booked. Passengers can add a maximum of 2 items of checked luggage to their booking. Each of these are permitted to weigh up to 20 kg. Charges will apply for any baggage that is deemed to be in excess of these limits. For health and safety reasons, the airline will not carry items weighing over 32 kg. Infants are entitled to check in a stroller for no extra fee.
