It is understood from usually well-informed sources that Fly540, which first spread their wings across the Eastern African region with operations in Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania, is now all set to go continental in the wider sense, when they commence flight operations later this month. One of the company’s joint CEOs, Mr. Neil Steffen, was spotted by a source this correspondent cultivated within Angola’s aviation industry in Luanda, and this was then also confirmed by a source within the Fly540 establishment in East Africa, giving the clearest indication yet that commencement of flights is now imminent, and a launch and inaugural flight is planned very soon.

The airline, the first in Eastern Africa to successfully promote the low cost, low fares concept, 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.
