fastjet Kenya Ltd has been granted an Air Service Licence (ASL) by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).

This clears the way for the airline to commence the application process for an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) which, once received, will allow it to operate domestic flights within Kenya.

The AOC application process involves an in-depth review of the carrier’s planned safety management system, operational manuals and structures, its senior staff, fleet, maintenance facilities and technical capability. An early stage of the process includes agreeing a timetable for the application process with the KCAA.
