fastjet delays start of Dar Es Salaam-Johannesburg service

fastjet postponed (26-Sep-2013) commencement of Dar Es Salaam-Johannesburg service, its first international route, due to "a very late request for additional documentation" by South Africa's Department of Transport. The service was scheduled to commence on 27-Sep-2013. The airline is confident of commencing the route by mid Oct-2013 and said the delay is not expected to have any material effect on its financial performance.
