Fly 540 schedule revision for Entebbe


UGANDA (eTN) – It was ascertained last week that under the new winter schedule just in effect, Fly 540 will now operate 12 weekly flights between Entebbe and Nairobi, with Tuesday and Sunday having one flight each, subject to an early review in accordance with demand, while on all other days there will be both an early morning and late evening flight operated between Entebbe and Nairobi.
All flights will be using the airline’s CRJ200 aircraft, which has the fastest flying time between the two cities.

In a related development, it was also learned that many of the ATR aircraft previously operated in Kenya and across the Eastern African skies have now been relocated to the new Fly 540 countries in Southern and Western Africa, where they will form the fleet backbone for the time being. In Eastern Africa, likely caused by increasing competitive pressure, the CRJs will be the workhorse aircraft, supplemented where needed by Bombardier Dash 8s and B1900s.
