A Day at Dar es Salaam

Fly 540 launched its Dar es Salaam, Nairobi direct flights on September 20, 2010.

I was invited to the inauguration cocktail party that introduced the 7-flights-a-week route straight to Dar, from Nairobi. Everything went according to plan aboard the CRJ 100 Jet.

We took off JKIA at 1030Hrs and I was honored to be seated next to the airline’s CEO, Mr. Don Smith. He’s a very cool guy and I have to note that he is putting a lot of effort to meet the passengers comfort needs as well as ease of travel, financially.

The flight was smooth and we touched down Dar es Salaam International airport at 1145Hrs. Many have had crazy experiences but other than the usual turbulence that’s expected along the coastal strip, the CRJ 100 was easy on the eardrums! The 1 hr 15 min flight makes it possible to attend business meetings across the boarder, in advantage to the East African Community trade.

There was a very nice reception by the Tanzanian media and toasts were made. (Keep away from the Konyagi) At around 1330Hrs we took off for JKIA and my note pad reads arrival at 1530Hrs. It was an hour’s flight buy I don’t know where I got the extra hour from. Lol. All in all, it was fun. Fly 540 have fair rates to many destinations. This works well with frequent flyers and NGOs. The airline also keeps an open mind to growth.

    Some people prefer taking weight loss tea, appetite suppressant, or fat
    binder products. There are many diet plans that are available for you to
    try but make sure you have success with them. When you tend to try this kind of diet, make sure that you are able to.

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment.
    I believe that you need to publish more on this subject matter, it may not be a taboo subject but typically folks don’t speak about such topics. To the next! Cheers!!
