Fly540 About Fly540

Founded in 2006 by Don Smith and Nixon Ooko, Fly540 is a low-cost Kenyan airline. Fly 540 did not begin operations until November 2014 with flights connecting Nairobi to Mombasa.

A new link to Mozambique was established after the creation of a base at Arusha airport in July 2009, then to Bujumbura in Burundi in January 2010. In 2011, Fly 540 was acquired by the airline company Fastjet. The same year, during the East African Community Conference in Kampala, the airline was recognized for her contribution to economic development in Africa. On June 10, 2013, Fly 540 signed a partnership with Qatar Airways to facilitate the journey of passengers making a stopover in Nairobi. To cope with the increased demand, the number of flights between Nairobi and Lodwar is reduced from 6 to 9 weekly flights in September. The restructuring of the airline leads to the suspension of operations in Ghana and Angola in May 2014. While the partnership between Fastjet and Fly 540 ends in June, a new collaboration is set up with Fly-SAX on July 1, which gives rise to connections to Kakamega. Flights to Dar es Salaam,Fly 540 is recognized in the industry and as a result, in 2019, it received the award of “Best Domestic Airline in Africa” for the fifth consecutive year. To date, Fly 540 serves 10 destinations in East Africa with a fleet of 9 aircraft.
