Togo reaching new heights

A little over a year after launching Asky, whose success needs no introduction, a new company marked its arrival in Togo on Friday.
"Fly To Go" ,being its name, is positioned in a market very different from that of Asky.
As soon as its launch, the originality of "Fly To Go", inspired by models of EasyJet, Ryanair and JetBlue, is the only company to target the Togolese market, including a dozen cities like Sokodé, Niamtougou, Sotoboua, Kpagouda, Notsé Bafilo and Kpalimé.
The question that stands: How is this service functional since Togo has only two airports, one in Lomé and the other in Niamtougou. Adam Lawson has found a solution and that is what makes this business credible and potentially viable.
The company has leased two aircraft from ILFC adapted to the specifications of the company. The first, Boeing 737-650 which is a 4WD equipped with special tires and an engine reconfigured to enable it to land on dirty roads of less than 600 meters; the second is an ATR42 turboprop-STT also designed for paved runways, but is much shorter, just about 450 meters.
6 tracks have already been upgraded to allow the commencement of flights, and all this work has been done in record time by the 'China Construction Advance Tech'.
The carrier is positioned low cost having an introductory price as low as 9000 Fcfa AR for Lomé-Niamtougou and 4500 Fcfa AR for Lome-Sokodé , provided a booking is made as soon as possible through the internet or via travel agencies around the country.
Consequently, everything else is charged extra, luggage, hand-bags, strollers, dried fish, baskets and even access to the toilet on board (100 FCFA). I recommend, its better to have money in case of an emergency!
