Welcome on Board

welcome-on-boardA great big welcome on board Airkenya, Regional Air Tanzania and AeroLink, whichever one of our three airlines you are flying – thank you for choosing to fly with us. With such amazing weather in Kenya, indeed East Africa, all year round we certainly make for happy people, at least that’s what a recent survey on the World’s Happiest people pointed too. Sunshine, makes happy people. It’s a great privilege to sell Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda because they are such fantastic destinations, each with its own unique landscapes and eco-systems.

Not surprising then, that Diani Beach has been voted 22nd out of 25 Best Beaches in the World 2015 by TripAdvisor, whilst taking up 3rd for Best Beach in Africa with Watamu coming in at 14th Best Beach on the continent. And its not just beaches we are renowned for, our Game Parks are natural wonders of the world too. Indeed, Game parks resonate with Africa. You will experience Africa’s tallest mountain as your backdrop in Amboseli or the amazing landscape of the northern frontiers of Samburu, Lewa Downs, Nanyuki and Meru, or indeed the Masai Mara, which is really the northern part of the Serengeti.

Every park will thrill you with its uniqueness and abundant wildlife found in their natural habitats. In Uganda, get close to the Gorilla’s in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest National Park an experience I am told that touches the soul. Or how about driving on the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, enter a circular amphitheatre where you will easily see the Big Five (Elephant, Lion, Buffalo, Rhino and Leopard) and so much more, explore Crater lake with its stunning array of birdlife including Flamingos.

Indeed the “world is your oyster” and exploring the wonders of the world is the stuff that memories are made of. At Airkenya, Regional Air and AeroLink we take pride in not just flying you but offering you an experience that will last a lifetime – which is why we have also embarked on Helicopters Scenic Safaris, exploring East Africa by Helicopter. Where flying over the Great Rift Valley, immerse the senses, sights including faulted rocks, waterfalls dropping 300 meters or game viewing on land and over lakes, landing on Hill tops… the experience will take your breath away. We have also developed a couple of Helicopter morning/day excursions. Check out the Airkenya Helicopter page 10 & 11, with a map showing you the routes for a scenic flight into Lake Magadi area, or further up to Naivasha. We will even make it possible for your very special moment, your marriage proposal to be done atop a Hill where only Helicopters can land – just let the Pilot in on the secret!

When we first took Emarti Primary School under our wings in 2012. Our vision was to create a world-class learning environment in the renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve. In March we will hand over two more classrooms, bringing the total to six classrooms, and within the next couple of months the Library and Ablution Block will be opened for use. These are very proud moments for Airkenya. Indeed, this past Christmas in the spirit of giving, Airkenya joined Olafur Eliasson’s Little Sun project together with you, our passengers we raised enough funds to purchase 150 solar lights for the students of Emarti Primary School. A great big ASANTE SANA.

Wherever you are flying to, we wish you a fabulous safari in East Africa.
