African budget airline Fastjet has appointed Nico Bezuidenhout as CEO, a position that has been vacant for almost three months after the resignation of Ed Winter.

Winter stepped down after Fastjet’s second-largest shareholder Stelios Haji-Joannou called an AGM to dismiss him.

Bezuidenhout is the outgoing executive of rival Mango Airlines.

Fastjet and Mango are part of a growing list of internationally-held and local low-cost airlines expanding operations in Africa.

British-based Fastjet plc is listed on the London Bourse.

Unlisted Mango is a state-owned South African airline and a subsidiary of South African Airways (SAA). It has not named an executive to replace Bezuidenhout who will leave his current position at the end of July.
