Tanzanian Discount Airline Unveils Handsome In-Flight Magazine

A cover shot at five-star destination the Matetsi Private Game Reserve

Only the hardiest North American travelers can claim to have ridden in a Fastjet plane, with the image of a grey parrot painted on the tail fin. That’s because at the moment, the discount Tanzanian airline flies only within that country and to-from Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

After a couple of beta issues, Fastjet has unveiled Places, its in-flight magazine, with an inaugural August/September issue. We wanted to share because we were struck by how great the cover is.

That’s Miss Tourism Zimbabwe 2016 Ashley Morgen, shot by Angie Lazaro and wearing a dress designed by South African designer Khosi Nkosi. She was photographed on the Zambezi river at the Matetsi Private Game Reserve in Zimbabwe. Stunning.

The editor of Places magazine is Tshepang Molisana, recently celebrated as one of “40 Under 40” by South African website Wine. She, like photographer Lazaro, is based in Cape Town.
