Welcome on board!

welcome-on-boardDear Passenger,
It is our great pleasure to fly you today! Whether you are on AIRKENYA in Kenya, REGIONAL AIR SERVICES (RAS) in Tanzania or AEROLINK (ALU) in Uganda you are on what has often been described as a trip of a lifetime.

Welcome to the home of the “safari”. Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda have so much to offer in terms of game viewing, “safari” experiences.

In 2015, RAS commenced flights into southern Tanzania’s Selous Game Reserve, the largest national animal reserve in Africa. We offer connections from Zanzibar into the Selous daily, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to get out there if you are already in East Africa! Check out Liz Mckee’s feature on the Selous in this issue of Ndege News.

Further, AIRKENYA and REGIONAL AIR are now able to connect you from the Masai Mara, Kenya into Serengeti, Tanzania whereas previously the routing would take you a whole day. You can now have breakfast in the Masai Mara and lunch in the Serengeti. Simply depart the Masai Mara after breakfast, fly into Migori and then do a short road transfer to Tarime in Tanzania via the border town of Isabania. RAS will pick passengers and we will have you at your camp/ lodge in the Serengeti in time for lunch! It’s as simple as that. If you have time and can extend your stay in East Africa then why not plan a trip into Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest to see the Gorilla’s in their habitat. Uganda – the ‘Pearl of Africa’ – will stun you with it’s beauty – with the dramatic lakes and green hills that dot its countryside.

AIRKENYA HELICOPTERS is making waves, we have had some fantastic feed back in 2015 and we can’t wait to take you on a Helicopter scenic flight in Kenya or anywhere in East Africa. Our Pilots know the regional landscape intrinsically and therefore make this experience extra special for you. Email us on helicopters@airkenya.com and we’ll be happy to offer a bespoke scenic flight for you.

AIRKENYA is very proud to have continued with the Emarti Primary School building program initiated four years ago: we have set out an ambitious plan to build a world-class primary school in the Masai Mara. With six classrooms, an ablution block (toilets for the staff & children), a library and a two-bedroom teachers’ house, the dream is becoming a reality.

Airkenya is making an appeal this Christmas. We need your help to stock the library and ask that you donate much needed books, which will go straight into the hands of the pupils of the Emarti Primary School. If you have donated one already, we sincerely thank you for your contribution. Airkenya shall be matching every cash donation to ensure the schools’ library will enrich the children of Emarti.

Wherever you are flying to today, enjoy your flight and enjoy your time in East Africa, we certainly hope its memorable enough to tell your friends and for you to come back again and again.

On behalf of AIRKENYA, REGIONAL AIR and AEROLINK, here’s wishing you a joyous holiday season and a very prosperous, happy and healthy New Year!
