A great big welcome on Airkenya, AeroLink and Regional Air, we hope you will enjoy your flight and we thank you for choosing to fly with us!
It is hard to imagine that we are at the end of 2013 already. It’s been an exciting year: we’ve braced tough as well as good times in Kenya. As an airline, Airkenya has much to be proud of in 2013. The Emarti Primary School, which Airkenya took under its wings two years ago now, has four new classrooms and the Headmistress has a two bed-room staff house with running water and solar power. Airkenya won the coveted “Eco Warrior Award 2013 – Airline” category and also bagged the World Tourism Awards for “Kenya’s Leading Domestic Safari Carrier”! We thank all Agents and Operators who continue to put their trust in us – together with all our customers: without you all this would not have been possible. Indeed, a humbling experience.
The Masai Mara is booming again; the wildebeest are migrating into the Masai Mara due to drought that has affected many parts of Tanzania – including the Serengeti. Airkenya pilots confirm the wildebeest are in the Serena area moving further into the Mara Reserve. If you missed it – or couldn’t get rooms earlier – you now have a second chance: do take up the opportunity this December!
Airkenya also offers Helicopter safaris – an area where we are experiencing growth in the recent months. Imagine flying through the Rift Valley and over its five Lakes (Naivasha, Elementaita, Nakuru, Bogoria and Baringo) short scenic trips around Mt Kilimanjaro or Mt Kenya; from Amboseli to Samburu; Meru to Nakuru, the Masai Mara and even to the Coast – all with their own different landscapes and wildlife. Our bespoke helicopter safaris give you surreal photo opportunities and breathless sights; landing on cliff-tops and sites where only helicopters can land and few have the privilege to enjoy. Talk to Airkenya for a bespoke Helicopter safari – or fly yourself or your VIP guests up to your Lodge or camp site. As we celebrate Kenya at 50 years, the Aero Club of Kenya will be hosting the Air Show the weekend of December 14 & 15. Be sure to look out for the Airkenya fly past!
Airkenya took delivery of a brand new Caravan in July and look forward to second one arriving in December. We are equally thrilled to be taking delivery of a second 50-seater Dash 7 aircraft this December as well! AeroLink Uganda has also been boosted with a second Caravan–making Ugandan Game Parks even more accessible through the scheduled service offered by AeroLink.
Regional Air continues to fly the northern Tanzanian circuit and you can make your way from Zanzibar into the Serengeti on their morning service. Wherever you are flying with us today, we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a blessed 2014!
