FastJet, the new budget African airline brand that easyJet founder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou is trying to get off the ground, today chose Airbus A319 aircraft and said it could be flying passengers by October.
The airline came about after a reverse takeover, finalised last month, in which infrastructure group Lonrho put its existing African aviation business — focusing on Kenya, Ghana and Tanzania — into AIM-listed cash shell Rubicon. Sir Stelios took a 5% stake.
Today FastJet said it will lease at least five Airbus A319 in the next six months and up to 15 within a year. Rubicon’s chief executive Ed Winter, who previously worked at British Airways’ budget offshoot Go, said: “The decision to launch with the Airbus A319 enables us to expand rapidly [with] passenger numbers doubling from current levels within six months.”
