Local airline SafariLink seeks to fly to the rest of African destinations after joining the African Airlines Association (AFRAA).
AFRAA, a trade association of airlines which hail from the nations of the African Union, and whose primary purpose to establish and facilitate co-operation between African airlines, welcomed Safarilink alongside Air Djibouti, Air Senegal and Uganda National Airlines.
Safarilink received safety certification from the International Air Transport Association (IATA), a trade association of the world’s carriers in May this year.
The certification is reserved for operators of smaller aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 5.7 tonnes.
The company, which mostly serves tourist routes including Diani and Masai Mara, has Cessna Caravan and DeHavilland Dash 8 models as part of their fleet.
