Fly540 to add BAe 146s

Another airline is planning to join the ranks of BAe 146/Avro RJ operators. Fly540, a subsidiary of the Lonrho conglomerate, will add three BAe 146s to its fleet. The aircraft, two series 300s and one series 200, will be delivered by the end of the year. The source of the aircraft was not disclosed. The low-cost airline will use the 146s to expand its network from its operational base in Kenya to other hubs across sub-Saharan Africa. Fly540 began operating in 2006, using two ATR42s. The airline recently received authorization to operate to Southern Sudan and the DRC from the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.
