A source within the Fly540 establishment has also confirmed that the airline,owned by Lonrho Africa,will soon launch an inaugural flight to the Portuguese speaking nation that recently hosted a successful African Cup of Nations and is quickly becoming an aviation hub in Southern Africa.

 Fly540 was the first airline in Eastern Africa to successfully promote the low cost, low fares concept, and is set to further widen their reach in 2010 and beyond, as they are also preparing to take off from Zimbabwe and other countries in Africa.


Meanwhile in Uganda, the airline is seeking to widen their market penetration - they presently offer two flights a day between Entebbe and Nairobi on their CRJ200 aircraft – and are said to be eyeing new destinations from Entebbe, too, a move much anticipated by the traveling public as it would undoubtedly widen choices and keep the fares down

    Wonderful to hear this news, how Fly540 is pioneering low cost flight in Africa. This will make it more accessible for more Africans to get around the continent both for business and pleasure.
    Hongera Fly540. We hope you become the Southwest Airline of Africa.

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
