Cape Town - With the festive season fast approaching, Pan-Africa's low-cost airline, fastjet has announced its schedule for domestic flights in Mozambique. 

It recently announced it has established brand licence agreements with Federal Airlines and Solenta Aviation Mozambique to gain the correct permissions to launch fastjet Mozambique.

The airline will also launch flights between Johannesburg and Maputo, a route that until now has been dominated by South African Airways (SAA) and Linhas Aérias Moçambicanas (LAM).

Currently operating in Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa, the low-cost carrier also intends to grow its network over time to enable affordable inbound and domestic travel.

The airline made its new schedule announcement on Thursday 12 October, after winning its second successive award for Africa’s Leading Low-Cost Airline at the World Travel Awards in Kigali, Rwanda on Wednesday, 11 October. This accolade follows the airline’s award in June this year for Africa’s Best Low-Cost Airline at the Skytrax World Travel Awards.
