flight from Lamu to Nairobi

I hope to fly from Lamu to Nairobi at the end of January 2014 but I have not been able to book a flight for this far in advance. Can anybody tell me if flights are readily available at short notice. Or advise when flights might be available to book? Which is the best airline?

I always use Fly540 to get to the Coast, I just ran a flight to see what they are doing and it seems they are taking bookings up to 22 Jan at the moment! That said, I have never had an issue getting a flight at a few days notice, so I would not get too stressed!

Fly540 and Air Kenya are ok, Safarilink has small planes. But be aware, Fly540 goes to Jomo Kenyatta Airport (International Airport), the other airlines are going to Nairobi-Wilson Airport. It doesn't matter much except you have a connecting flight.

Otherwise, just try to book your flight in a few months. It's not a problem. January 30th might be during Maulidi Festival but if you book a few months in advance it's absolutely no problem. Maybe by then, even Jambo Jet will be operating. Kenya Airways is still working on its budget airline.

You should be to secure a seat on Fly540 when you are in Lamu (& book from Fly540 office in Lamu).

In case you want to book in advance, Fly540 does have website for On-Line booking.

Take precaution, i've heard & read of clients losing money thro' Credit Card transactions thro' on-line booking (these are one-off cases ie it's not very common though)
