Lonrho plc is a London based company engaged in multiple business sectors in Africa.[1] The company was formed in 1998 as a demerger from Lonmin (at the time called "Lonrho") and it was called Lonrho Africa plc from 1998 until May 2007.[2] Lonrho was also the owner of the low-cost airline Fastjet operating in East Africa.[3]

As of 2014 both Fly 540 Ghana and Fly 540 Angola stated on their websites that they were "Lonrho Companies."[4]
