Aviation breaking news – FLY540 adding three times a week service from Wilson to Vipingo


True to their recent form of expanding their domestic destinations to locations other airlines have not been thinking about, has Fly 540 now announced a three times a week service from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport via Vipingo to Malindi and back effective March 18th. Fly 540, operating from both Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Wilson Airport, now has without doubt the most extensive scheduled flights network across Kenya including to many of the country’s key national parks. Vipingo has come into the spotlight in recent years as a purpose built and gated estate and golf club community and the who is who from Kenya and more and more of the rich and famous from abroad have lined up to build or buy weekend getaways and holiday homes, conveniently located between Mombasa and Malindi along the coastal strip. The ‘on estate’ airstrip makes arrivals and departures ‘easy’ as no lengthy travel to and from will be required by passengers.

In particular the manicured championship courses at Vipingo have immediately attracted golfers from the entire region but also from overseas and the elevated location of Vipingo creates much cooler day time temperatures compared to the beach side, making golfing much more pleasant especially during the hot dry season. The new air service from the ‘city airport’ in Nairobi to Vipingo makes it much easier to get to that part of the coast and the use of the proven Beechcraft 1900 King Air will make for comfortable travel in a pressurised cabin. The airfare, all inclusive of taxes and fuel surcharges, of KShs 10.540/- will surely attract enough passengers to make this route too a winner for the airline. The flights operate every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday
