fastjet Kenya is a LCC start-up to be launched as a subsidiary of parent airline, fastjet with the help of local investors. The airline announced the move following the disposal of its ownership stake in Fly540 Kenya. In Oct-2015, the carrier received an air service licence from the CAA and stated it is seeking an Air Operator's Certificate. fastjet Kenya was granted a one-year air service licence to operate scheduled services between Eldoret, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nairobi and Wajir. The licence also includes non-scheduled passenger and cargo services to destinations in Kenya, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. fastjet Kenya plans to employ 80 staff in the first year and commence domestic and international services to Burundi, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda with possible future expansion to South Africa and Zambia. fastjet planned to launch the Kenyan affiliate in 2016, subject to CAA approval. A revised launch date has not been advised.

In May-2016, the Kenyan CAA formally published the notification awarding fastjet Kenya its air service licence to operate scheduled domestic services between Eldoret, Kisumu, Mombasa, Nairobi and Wajir as well as international routes to Entebbe, Johannesburg, Addis Ababa and Juba. The carrier will now move for formal approval of an air operator certificate (AOC), which would permit it to operate in Kenya.
