AirKenya Express intends to suspend all flights to Lamu, Malindi, and Ukunda from January 2019 according to a statement from the airline. The company is citing its decision on the fact that the routes are well served by other airlines such as Fly540, Jambo Jet, and Safarilink.
AirKenya General Manager Capt. Dino Bisleti said:
“This gives the company the chance to serve you better regionally by redeploying capacity to where it’s needed more.”
AirKenya’s Upcoming Routes
AirKenya plans to start offering flights for the Mara-Entebbe-Mara route through Kisumu once it receives regulatory approval.
“Effective 1 June 2019 […] Air Kenya will operate an onward connection to Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Queen Elizabeth National Park, Murchison Falls and Kidepo Valley National Park,” the company said in the statement.
The airline also said its subsidiary Regional Air Services Tanzania based in Arusha will begin to operate a Bombardier Dash 8 aircraft from Serengeti to Zanzibar at the year’s end.
