AirKenya Express started the New year with a double celebration.

On 2nd January 2014, its 7th brand new Cessna Grand Caravan arrived from the Cessna Factory, in Wichita, Kansas, USA.  The new Caravan is the second of the EX series with airline. Two days later, on Saturday 4th January 2014 there was champagne popping as the deHavilland DASH 7 arrived to boost the airlines seating capacity. 

The Dash 7 is the most robust STOL (short landing and take off) aircraft able to land on the dust airstrip of Kenya's Game parks.  The Dash 7 seating capacity is 50 passengers. Needless to say AirKenya Express will operate two Dash 7's with total seating capacity of 100 passengers.
