Fly 540 routes Kilimanjaro flights via Wilson


(eTN) – In a sharpish departure from conventional wisdom and operating practices that scheduled regional flights beyond Kenya’s borders only depart from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Fly 540 has just introduced a routing for their flights to and from Kilimanjaro, Arusha, via Wilson.

Customs and immigration are in any case set up already to facilitate the handling of charters and private flights and the vicinity to the city, compared with the added distance to JKIA, will undoubtedly meet expectations of safari operators providing a multi-country vacation to their clientele. The flight, presently using a Beechcraft 1900 or larger aircraft as required, will operate WIL–JRO–NBO–WIL on a daily basis leaving “the world’s busiest safari airport” at 1:00 pm.

Travelers coming, for instance, from Entebbe on Fly 540, however, may now require a road transfer to Wilson to catch the JRO departure, something the airline is working on reportedly, but Nnote, that a transit visa may be required for non-East African citizens.
