Fly540 Confirms Long Term Policy to Provide Value for Money Travel in Kenya
Coastweek - - Fly540 which operates two daily flights between Nairobi and Mombasa has confirmed the airline's long term policy of providing value for money air travel within Kenya and the region.
The new airline has been inspired by the worldwide demand for low cost travel which appeals to both the business and leisure markets.
Nixon Ooko, the Fly540 Operations Director, said:
"Our airline will offer a low fare on every flight, every day, regardless of the season.
"We give a choice of four fares with different levels of flexibility.
"A significant number of seats for each flight are allocated to passengers paying our lowest fare.
"In line with other low cost carriers around the world, we advise customers to book and pay in good time to secure these seats.
"We will help both Kenyans and overseas visitors to travel to and from the coast for their Christmas and New Year holidays by arranging as many flights as possible.
"This exercise will be repeated for Easter travel next year."
Asked about the response to the launch of Fly540, Nixon Ooko, replied:
"Very encouraging. Feedback from customers and the travel trade has confirmed the validity of our market research.
"This demonstrated the demand for simple point to point air travel in Kenya and neighbouring countries at this time of economic growth."
Talking of the future, Chief Executive Officer Don Smith said:
"Our second aircraft will be arriving in the course of the next few days and we will commence operating a third daily return flight in the middle of the month.
"This will leave Nairobi at 8.40 am and return from Mombasa at 10.40 am.
"In the New Year, we are planning flights to Malindi. We are also analyzing potential routes for our first international service.
"Meanwhile we are concentrating on achieving a high level of punctuality which is one of our objectives of running a low cost airline without sacrificing high operating standards.
"Already eighty five per cent of our services have departed on time."
