Airline Mission

Rastair began as an idea to reinvent all airline operations, bringing the future of air travel to its passengers through cost savings. We achieve this by being the most prudent airline in the skies. When you travel with Rastair, you can expect the unexpected and genuinely begin to understand what lies behind our slogan; We put the hospital in hospitality.

Rastair’s fleet

Rastair has, in an effort to cut every possible corner, leased the incredibly fuel-efficient aircraft A320 Neo. We naturally opted for the most budget-minded leasing agreements, saving tremendous maintenance costs and the crew needed to support our operations.

In the future, Rastair will also enter into leasing agreements with several companies in less regulated markets, mainly using cost-effective methods to lease the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner for even more fuel efficiency on our long-haul routes. Due to the nature of these agreements and for the purpose of going furtively, we can’t disclose our methodology – however – we can promise even more cost savings for the company and a bright future for the airline.

Our philosophy

We truly believe that our way of doing business is a win-win for the passengers. By using young planes, we simply don’t make a fuss out of maintenance. By only hiring co-pilots, we can increase cockpit efficiency while saving on salary costs for more highly trained pilots.

We even saved money on the gate operations by letting go of the gate management personnel altogether, allowing the single pilot to control everything from jetway connections to refueling the aircraft on-site.

Our highly professional cabin crew is hired directly from low-cost markets, saving us up to 75% in salary costs per flight. This cost-saving is naturally not transferable to the ticket price. However, it will guarantee a pleasant flight experience, as all our cabin crew members are delighted to even have a job. That translates to happy crew members and happy passengers. Again, this is, in our opinion, a real win-win situation.

The Rastair experience

We know that many passengers are afraid of flying, and while other companies don’t care about your feelings, we at Rastair do so very much. That’s why we have included both the option to release nitrous oxide from the oxygen masks during emergencies flight – a chargeable service, naturally – and even provide the added comfort of a smoke detector deactivation package that may be purchased before entering our lavatories in cruise.

We even made it easier to bring your luggage! There are no luggage fees at Rastair because there’s not luggage at all to bring. Before your flight, we allow our passengers to ship their bags in the regular mail (we recommend the Royal Nigerian Postal Service Ltd. for all your shipping needs – we use them for all our aircraft parts purchased from eBay!), meaning you never have to worry about bringing or checking your luggage again. There are other reasons behind this decision, in addition to making the Rastair experience even better for you – mainly that we can fill our cargo hold to the brim with packages and other cargo, allowing us to be the go-to option for companies looking to ship their cargo to various destinations across the globe.

Combining our cost-saving philosophy with the pleasure of flying high in the skies – both literally and figuratively – we have created the Rastair experience. We proudly put the hospital to hospitality.

Have a nice flight!
