Commenting on the news, Ellis Cain-Jones, Head of Commercial at fastjet said: "Ancillary revenues are a key element of the low cost model and contribute to the airline's revenues.  These joint-ventures, together with our rapidly developing on-board retail offering, are the first of a very exciting list of customer-centric products fastjet expects to roll-out over the coming months. 

"fastjet will also continue to work in each of the local markets in which it operates to identify uniquely local ancillary products that help promote local commerce and increase customer satisfaction."
