Kenya’s fastest growing low cost carrier (LCC) Silverstone Air Services has launched flights between Nairobi and Maasai Mara to cater for the tourist market.
Silverstone will be launching the scheduled flights from Wilson Airport to Maasai Mara on July 10, 2018. The 45 minute flight will be departing Nairobi at 11.00 a.m. and departing Maasai Mara at 12.15pm.
A return ticket on the flight will cost Ksh.29,500.
The launch of the Silverstone flights will increase competition on the route which is already served by Safarilink and Fly-Sax along with several other chartered carriers.
Silverstone says the daily return flight will also be targeting other airstrips in the region including Mara North, Serena and Keekorok and is aimed at the leisure travelers on the northern tourist circuit.
Silverstone has been on an aggressive expansion drive over the past year with the launch of its flights from Nairobi to Kisumu, Lamu, Ukunda and Malindi. Early this year, Silverstone made history by becoming the first airline to launch direct Kisumu to Mombasa flights.
Its busiest and most lucrative route is currently the Nairobi-Kisumu one where the airline makes 17 trips per week. Passengers travelling on the Mombasa to Kisumu route are now served with three weekly flights.
