Now that I’ve flown Air Kenya a few times, I feel as though I can give it a review: I love it! Our round trip flights from Wilson Airport in Nairobi to Ukunda Airstrip in Diani and to the Buffalo Springs Airstrip in Samburu were both great. The rides were smooth even though we flew in small planes. The pilots were fantastic, and, I’m happy to say, Air Kenya hires a lot of female pilots.
Granted, when you go out to the smaller airstrips, you need to work with whatever is available there. At Wilson Airport, you’ll have a comfortable lounge with wifi, a small restaurant, and ample seating. Also the bathrooms are clean and well serviced, something I can’t say for LGA in New York. (I’ve traveled the world and the worst bathrooms I’ve encountered are at LGA. Maybe the people running JFK can help them out.)
For good service, a safe flight, and on time travel, you can’t beat Air Kenya.
