Is Skyward Airlines reliable to fly Lamu to Mombasa?

I am trying to get from Lamu to Mombasa in December. It seems like my two options are to fly Lamu to Nairobi to Mombasa with Fly540, or to take Skyward Airlines direct from Lamu to Mombasa. Obviously a direct flight is preferred (and is cheaper!) but I haven't been able to find a lot of information on Skyward Airlines. Has anyone flown them? Does anyone have any feedback or information?

Thanks!

Jennie

Skyward Express is a quite new airline coming to Lamu (since end of March 2017) but they are quite on time. Otherwise, you can take a flight with Fly540 to Malindi and from Malindi Town an express matatu to Mombasa (that's what I do if I need to go to Mombasa because that's the cheapest option if you get a flight to Malindi for 2500 KES).

I have flown Skyward many times living in Lamu. They are great. I would go with this option to save time and money!
