Airkenya adds a Eurocopter AS350
AirKenya has acquired a Eurocopter AS350 B3 helicopter from Airbus Helicopters with 5Y-HNB having arrived in East Africa this week, reports ch-aviation.
Airline general manager Dino Bisleti said in a statement the helicopter will bolster the carrier's operations, as it continues to offer scheduled flights to major game parks and beach resorts in the country.
“The new helicopter can fly with both doors open offering the ultimate scenic flight for photographers and clientele who wish to experience safaris differently, that is, up-close and personal,” he said.
The helicopter will be used to offer flight packages including scenic flights of Nairobi heading towards the southern end of the Great Rift Valley as well as to Lake Magadi, Kenya’s southern-most lake in the Eastern Rift Valley.
