Fly540 builds partnership in western Kenya


It was learned that Fly540’s Kenyan operation has entered into a partnership agreement with an Eldoret-based tour company last week. The deal will give tourist passengers arriving in Eldoret quality ground transportation for visitors to nearby tourist attractions, wanting to explore the Kerio Valley or generally tour this touristically underexploited but nevertheless very scenic part of Kenya.

Fly540 has been pioneering flights to Western Kenya to provide easy access for business travelers from and to Nairobi and Mombasa, and the wider region, but has now also targeted tourists destined to Western Kenya. The airline offers, besides Eldoret, also other destinations like Kitale, Kakamega, and Kisumu on their domestic network to upcountry locations.

Undoubtedly, the Kenya Tourist Board will be grateful for these initiatives, as Fly540’s latest effort is in support of their own objectives of opening up new parts of the country to tourists, and flying there is now the first choice after combining the flights with meet and greet, tour-guiding, and transportation services.
