Fly 540 adds more flights to Lodwar


(Posted 14th September 2013)

Fly 540 has with immediate effect increased their flights from Nairobi to Lodwar, a town in Northern Kenya.

According to information received from the airline’s PR agency there will now be an added departure on Tuesday leaving the capital at 6 a.m., up to now the only day without any flight. Monday, Wednesday and Friday will with immediate effect have a second daily departure, leaving Nairobi at 3 p.m. from the temporary domestic terminal at the Cargo section, which became necessary due to a major fire just over a month ago at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Fly 540 is Kenya’s only airline to offer scheduled flights to Lodwar. The airline’s CEO Don Smith was quoted in the media release to have said: ‘We are pleased that we are able to offer our passengers greater availability and flexibility on this route. Our flights are low cost and offer passengers a more convenient form of transport than travelling by road. The new flights reflect the increasing demand for domestic air travel in Kenya, and Fly540’s commitment to meet that demand’.

At the same time has the airline’s new website gone on line which offers passengers a more user-friendly experience as well as greater access to up to date information. In addition, the website now includes a ‘Special Offers’ section and an option for passengers to sign-up to the Fly540 mailing list to receive promotions and updates about Fly540’s routes.

Fly 540 also launched their Passenger Charter, which contains the following commitments to passengers and the general public:

  2. Don smith is a rude pathetic excuse for a human being …this blog has entries dating back to jan 2012 …all the comments about don smith are negative ! He is a tyrant and terrorises his staff …and they run a sham of an operation…. the company is most unprofessional ….their creditor list is a mile long and the only reason fastjet patched up with don and fly540 is because they have tonnes of money stuck in the deal !!! The only people he gets along with are the two indians who work for him ! Waste of time individual and crook !!!!
