Fastjet launches new route between Harare and Lusaka as airline celebrates second year in Zimbabwe fastjet will operate a new route between Harare and Lusaka, with the first flight scheduled for 13 November 2017. The additional route is the fifth Zimbabwean route for fastjet as the airline celebrates its second anniversary in the country and fifth brand birthday this year. Two weeks ago, fastjet also reintroduced its Victoria Falls Johannesburg route while adding additional flights between Harare and Johannesburg and Harare and Victoria Falls. Flights between Harare and Lusaka are already on sale at a launch fare from $80 all inclusive. Fastjet’s new Summer 2017 schedule, including flights between Harare and Lusaka, is available at www.fastjet.com. Fastjet becomes airline brand with largest Facebook following in Africa fastjet this week became the airline with the largest Facebook community in Africa, passing the 1.1 million mark in the number of followers in its orbit. The airline recently reimagined its content strategy on the platform in line with consumer feedback and customer service with initial successes affirming the carrier’s leading position on social media amongst its peers. A recent customer survey by fastjet indicated that Facebook remains the more popular method of engagement for its customers at a preference rate of 80% compared to Twitter and Instagram. Evidenced by its organic growth rate, Instagram is fast becoming more popular as an engagement platform while Twitter’s newsfeed-style remains a platform where price and special-offers are digested quickly and responded to fast. “Over the past few years different social media platforms have become quite defined in shape and purpose,” says fastjet spokesperson Hein Kaiser, “and according to our customers Facebook remains the most popular channel to engage on all levels.” To this end fastjet have redefined the common and channel specific purpose of its social media presence. “Customer service is an absolute priority with our response rate shortened from 55% over 2 days to 96% within an hour,” says Kaiser. “In addition, we have repurposed our content strategy to balance hard sales with engaging, more visual content and increased our posting frequency to match feedback.” Twitter feeds have become a higher volume platform while Instagram and Facebook have a strong lifestyle element to content. “Thus far the strategy seems to be effective with fastjet’s social reputation improving vastly.” Beyond customer service the carrier leverages its social media channels to drive network and destination awareness as well as communicating commercially. “Our objective is to effectively manage social communities across all aspects of engagement; from consumer relevant content through to sales and special offers as well as customer service.” As the airline grows, so it plans to develop its community to reflect the airline’s growing pan-African footprint. “Fastjet plans to touch the lives of everyone on the continent as we grow our brand into its ambition of being Africa’s pan-continental low-cost airline.” “Social media is an animal of its own and the key lies in simplicity. Successful commercial campaigns have shown that the hard-sell is okay, but must be tempered with engaging content and reliable information. Brands need to be authentic and consumers will accept and engage on these mutually agreed, tacit terms,” says Kaiser. Fastjet has been experimenting with pure organic growth and measuring its rate of attrition against its redefined community and content strategy. “Our rate of attrition has reduced significantly while organic growth has enabled fastjet’s Facebook community to grow into pole position amongst its peers.”

Where has that come from? What is good is that we are no longer inundated with febrile Rns's. Much more solid and assured footing.

People getting board !. It could be a while before the next unpate as i think the new BoD will keep to the interim and full year results to update the market, rather than release pointless RNS's. IMHO Slow and steady wins the race.

FASTJET Zimbabwe has tripled flights between the Harare and Johannesburg route due to “significant demand-side growth” for its flights between the two cities beginning from next month. BY TATIRA ZWINOIRA Fastjet currently operates up to three and soon there will be four daily flights between Harare and Johannesburg and four return flights per week between Harare and Victoria Falls. Regional marketing executive, Faith Chaitezvi, told NewsDay in emailed responses yesterday that the airline had seen positive growth in the cross-border sector since their launch in the country in 2014. “We have seen very positive growth in the cross-border sector since our launch in Zimbabwe and demand continues to show positive movement between Harare and Victoria Falls. Our market-share is growing and we are encouraged as passenger volumes continue to move in a positive, upward direction,” she said. “There has been significant demand-side growth for fastjet flights between the two cities and, Harare to Johannesburg is an important business route between the two countries. By increasing our frequency we are offering greater flexibility to the business traveller and traders to save time and costs by giving them more flights, more often.” The low cost airline, Fastjet Zimbabwe, was prompted to increase the flights after it had seen increased passenger volumes for the Harare to Johannesburg route. Fastjet Zimbabwe has grown to become a favoured airline to use in Zimbabwe for the Harare and Johannesburg route due to its cheaper prices. The airline industry in Zimbabwe has been plagued with negativity evidenced by the failures in Flyafrica Zimbabwe before the change of management and the embattled Air Zimbabwe. Concerning the prevalent cash shortages in the country, Chaitezvi said they had introduced point-of-sale (POS) machines. “As a business we continue to develop ways to make it easier for our customers to do business with us. Mobile money options and bank card swiping facilities are available in all our sales shops,” she said. In November last year, the board of airlines representative and South African Airways country manager, Winnie Muchanyuka, was on record saying that airlines would also accept bond notes. Chaitezvi said they were very profitable returns on the back of increased passenger volumes.
