Fastjet To Sell Zimbabwe Business To South African Airline For US$8m

Budget airline FastJet Group has announced that it’s selling its Zimbabwean business. Fastjet Zim will be bought by a consortium led by its major shareholder Solenta Aviation for US $8 million. Some Zimbabweans as said to be part of the consortium.

Said Fastjet in a notice:

“fastjet Zimbabwe has increased its year on year revenue despite the difficult trading conditions following the introduction of a new currency which effectively devalued the existing currency by up to 15 times its previous value at official rates and has pushed inflation rates to above 200%,”

Fastjet said if the restructuring plans do not pan out by the end of February, the Africa-focussed company would not be able to continue trading as a going concern.

Fastjet Group would be given the option of returning as a shareholder by re-acquiring its stake in the Zimbabwean operation within three to five years.
