The editor of this site has received complaints from a couple of staff working at the Fly 540 owned airline, Fly Sax.
The employees say that they have not been paid for the past four months.
Others say that they received termination letters without due process.
Trouble At Fly Sax/540
We’ve previously highlighted that Fly Sax is run like a dilapidated matatu where spare parts and servicing of planes is a toll order.
We showcased how Fly 540/Sax likes taking short cuts in terms of servicing their aircrafts, read below.
Fly 540 And How It’s Mismanagement Has Seen Disaster Like The Recent FLY SAX Crash
This was revealed after a Fly Sax light aircraft that flew the Kitale – Nairobi route hit a hill-side at at Njambini area, Aberdare ranges killing all 10 people on board.
The government has never formed a commission of inquiry to investigate the air accident that dented credibility and safety of Kenya’s airspace.
White Supremacists like Don Smith, the CEO of Fly 540 doesn’t care about some Africans dying.
He doesn’t count the human cost.
He doesn’t care that those people who died were breadwinners, uncles, fathers, aunts.
Now his ideology has made him fire staff without notice and to delay their salaries for three months.
Those who were fired have also not received their dues.
We received the following information:
I’m [name withheld], a former employee of Fly-sax now East African.com, seeking justice for unfair dismissal based on company redundancy.
Am yet to be paid his 3 months salary and service pay.
The management of fly-sax/540 are treating their staff badly.
Those at work yet to receive 2 months salary.
Note that fly-sax changed name to east african. com without prior notice to both employees and customers
This company seems to be going down, but they don’t tell clearly what’s happening.
Right now, I have been locked out of my house, they are doing delaying tactics to frustrate us
I haven’t been paid Feb, March salaries on top of service pay
Kindly highlight this.
Employees at Fly 540 airlines are yet to receive their pay, 4months down the line.
The owner is acting like nothing is happening. He doesn’t care.
He has a tax evasion and non-payment of fuel.
A visit to the airlines website shows that they have suspended flights.
