Cancelled flight with no notice (probably because it enough customers). Staff completely unhelpful and couldn’t care at all about customers . Airline offices at Kilimanjaro have no internet and only take cash. Of course ATM machine wasn’t working. Cancelled flight caused us to miss connection and ultimately cost us $10k inner tickets

They are very strict on time but very timely in departures and arrivals in comparison with the smaller local planes.

Zero communication with the passengers some of which had checked in early for a 9pm flight. Stuck in the cold we’re elderly women and children. This airline couldn’t even put out a...

The plane we were meant to depart on only arrived when our ticket said we would be departing, so we were late by about 30 minutes. The flight was in a small plane (3 seats across) and was a bit cramped. However, it was clean and the air crew were professional. Considering the price, it was a fair flight.

It is a smaller plane than I am used to but all went well fantastic. To Harare the plane was full, but on our return we could move to sit alone. The service on the ground and on the plane were very good. The air hostesses were very friendly and extremely professional and helpful. They assisted me very kindly. I...

An affordable airline and their time is spot on. Ok for short flights, but for longer flights you may have to look elsewhere.

Although on the website fastjet looks nice online. The customer service at the sales desk in Dar Es Salaam, TZ was horrendous. No where on the website did it say that they didn't take debit card. Neither of my cards worked at the airport ATM and the sales lady didn't give two $#!+$. My friends dad paid for 2 bags,...

- Price was reasonable - Flight was on time and reached on time as well - Traffic to airport in Dar was horrible and we almost missed it so leave atleast 3 hours before your flight to avoid disappointment.
