Fly540 is a Kenyan low-cost airline which operates flights around East Africa. The airline is based in Nairobi and has a hub at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), flying to destinations in Kenya, South Sudan and Zanzibar with scheduled flights.

The airline was founded in 2006 and began flying in November of that year with domestic flights between Nairobi and Mombasa with ATR 42 aircraft. In 2007, the airline added additional aircraft and developed new domestic routes which led to passenger numbers increasing by 93% by the end of 2008. In 2008, the airline introduced international flights to South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda.

In 2012, the airline was purchased by Fastjet, who wanted to invest and launch Africa’s budget airline with a similar business model as EasyJet.

The airline has previously owned two subsidiaries; Fly540 Ghana, which suspended operations in 2014 and was subsequently sold, and Fly540 Angola which was also suspended in May 2014.

In 2019, the airline won the award for Kenya’s Leading Domestic Airline for the 5th time in a row, by World Travel Awards.
