About AirKenya

AirKenya (Express) is a Kenyan airline based in Nairobi and operates domestic scheduled flights to Tanzania.

From its hub at Wilson Airport, this airline operates both scheduled and charter flights across the region and has two wholly-owned subsidiaries: Regional Air Services in Tanzania and Aerolink in Uganda.

This Kenyan carrier flies to many destinations in Kenya but also internationally to Tanzania. It operates flights to the Samburu National Reserve. If you are interested in Safari flights, you can find other safari park flights here

The airline was founded in 1987 combined by the merger of Air Kenya and Sunbird Aviation. The two companies had over 20 years of aviation experience in East Africa and formed Airkenya Aviation. In 2007, the branding changed to establish AirKenya Express.

Class Fares

As AirKenya provides charter flights, there is no specific class system for passengers. However, as the charter flights are changeable by organisers, it will be at the discretion of the organiser to determine what the flight will provide and entail. There is the option to use the AirKenya exclusive passenger terminal to provide a enhanced premium experience. Seat layout depends on the aircraft used, for example, the seats available in each aircraft are either 50, 37, 18 or 11, so the setup of these will vary.

Baggage Restrictions

The airline requires that passengers bring soft-padded bags on the flight. This is due to the limited room for storage onboard its aircraft. Any baggage that is not soft-padded may be refused.
