The first, with Rentalcars.com parent company, TravelJigsaw, will offer low-cost car hire in Africa through fastjet.com, and the second will deliver competitively-priced online parking services in South Africa in partnership with Looking4Parking.com (L4P). 

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." 

Ady Guthrie, director of strategic partnerships at Rentalcars.com said of the joint venture: 

"Being one of the world's largest online car rental reservation agencies, we are delighted to be able to partner with fastjet in this exciting new opportunity.  We're very excited by the prospect of fastjet's continued growth within the African market and look forward to being able to offer top quality car hire brands to fastjet customers." 

The joint venture with Looking4Parking will initially serve fastjet passengers flying between Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam, offering parking at three sites at O.R Tambo International Airport. The service will also be available in Cape Town and Durban, in preparation for fastjet's expansion in the South Africa.
