DeHavilland aircraft are renowned for their rugged construction reliability and versatility. Coupled with the reliability of Pratt and Whitney turboprop engines they are a force to be reckoned with.
The Dash-8 is no exception and is used by many airlines all over the world. It is a pressurized single aisle aircraft and was designed primarily for the high-density commuter network with an emphasis on comfort.
There is an entire family of Dash-8 aircraft starting with 37 seats up to the newest family member with 76 seats
The Dash 8 can fly at heights of up to 25000 feet and cruises at speeds of up to 270 miles an hour putting destinations such as Lamu Malindi Mombasa and Diani in easy reach with flight times of just over one hour which coupled with our 45 minute check in time makes for a relaxed and enjoyable trip.
Airkenya also avails aircraft for charter work and we have been as far afield as Khartoum Addis Ababa Asmara Djibouti and the Seychelles.
