Maintaining Passenger Loads

Low season equals low airfares in Nairobi

Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN  Apr 26, 2010

In an effort to maintain and increase passenger loads during the present low season on the tourist market, Fly 540 is offering a low-cost airfare between Entebbe and Nairobi. The fares will initially be available until the end of May but could be extended further at that time.

Fly 540 operates two daily flights between Kenya and Uganda, using their new CRJ 200 aircraft, which has reduced flying times between the two cities to under one hour.

In a move holding little surprise for aviation observers, Kenya Airways has also put a low-fare offer on the market, for which, while terms and conditions apply, there will be demand in the market place, considering that the loyalty scheme of KQ earns points for travelers even when on these special fares.

When point-to-point passengers now make their choices, it will be largely influenced by punctuality, service on board, convenient departure/arrival times, as all airlines on the route now use modern, state-of-the-art jets, no longer bringing the question of aged aircraft into play.
