Low-cost regional airline, fastjet has introduced a flight bundle solution known as FlexiTrip, which allows frequent fliers to purchase 10 one-way flights at a fixed price inclusive of taxes and fees.
The airline said, the FlexiTrip solution provides flexibility as flights can be booked up to six hours before departure time and is valid for travel within a year of purchase, subject to flight availability. The 10 flights can be used by any of the three passengers nominated at the time of making the booking, allowing passengers the choice of who can benefit from the bundle flights.
Nico Bezuidenhout fastjet CEO, said: “fastjet has responded to the needs of its frequent fliers, many who have last-minute business meeting requests or spontaneously want to visit family and friends throughout the year.”
FlexiTrip provides frequent travellers with affordability and savings benefits, as the 10 flights are paid for in advance at a fixed price, which will not fluctuate close to the departure date.
“This added service offering makes it possible for our frequent fliers to plan regular trips more efficiently and also budget better due to the fixed ticket price,” Bezuidenhout said.
Depending on the country of booking, you can choose between three FlexiTrip options:
- FlexiTrip – Tanzania Domestics, for travel within Tanzania on all routes between Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza, Mbeya and Zanzibar.
- FlexiTrip – Zimbabwe Domestics, for flights between Harare and Victoria Falls.
- FlexiTrip – Harare/Jo’burg/VicFalls, for flights on our routes between Harare and Johannesburg, and Victoria Falls and Johannesburg.
The ten FlexiTrip tickets can be used by one of three passengers who you nominate at the time of purchase. It is not possible for you to nominate different passengers after the time of purchase. Nominate colleagues, friends or family members; it’s up to you who can benefit from this flexible product. You can utilise the tickets for a period of twelve months, allowing you to book trips either a few days or months in advance.
The FlexiTrip package can be booked via the fastjet call centre.
Additional service offerings from fastjet include Freight, a baggage upgrade option that allows its international route passengers to transport up to 80kg of checked in bags, being able to pre-book preferred seats, rent a car, book accommodation and pre-book airport parking among others.
