Breaking aviation news – Fly 540 now routes Kilimanjaro flights via Wilson


In a sharpish departure from conventional wisdom and operating practices, that scheduled regional flights beyond Kenya’s borders only depart from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, has Fly 540 just introduced a routing for their flights to and from Kilimanjaro / Arusha via Wilson.

Customs and immigration are in any case set up already to facilitate the handling of charters and private flights and the vicinity to the city, compared with the added distance to JKIA, will undoubtedly meet expectations of safari operators providing a multi country vacation to their clientele. The flight, using presently a Beechcraft 1900, or larger aircraft as required, will operate WIL – JRO – NBO – WIL on a daily basis leaving ‘the world’s busiest safari airport’ at 1 p.m.

Travellers coming for instance from Entebbe on Fly 540 however may now require a road transfer to Wilson to catch the JRO departure, something the airline is working on reportedly, but NOTE, that a transit Visa may be required for non-East African citizens.
