Posted 22 April 2014 · Add Comment

UAS International Trip Support, a provider of global trip support services for flight operators, VIPs, and government officials, is opening a regional office in Nairobi, Kenya.

UAS’s decision to open a regional office in Nairobi is a response to the strengthening economic conditions in Africa. “Kenya was the third largest purchaser of business aircraft in Africa in 2012, and many airlines have made Nairobi their African headquarters. This is where they base their operations to connect to European airports and pick-up passengers brought in by local and regional operators," says Wynand Meyer, UAS regional director Africa. "Our new office in Nairobi will allow us to better support our commercial and general aviation clients with their international operations as well as activities across Africa.”   

Having served more than 7,000 flights in Africa in 2013, UAS expects to grow its business on the continent by 30% this year and by 50% in 2015.  

“Our business from Kenya will be a major force underpinning our growth projections," added Mohammed Husary, UAS executive president. "All indicators have shown us that the aviation industry is one of the fastest growing sectors of the Kenyan economy and that this is the right time for us to enter and invest in this market.”   

Similar to its regional office in Lagos, the local staff is fully equipped with state-of-the-art remote communications tools, allowing for real-time monitoring of equipment and fuel availability, access to the latest NOTAMs, and instant notification of trip-plan deviations.  

“We have had an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from clients regarding the additional local support they will receive," said Husary. "Our agents and representatives speak the local languages and have a deep understanding of the local and regional aviation environments. By having agents near our clients, we give every customer our undivided attention, mitigating any complication without compromising UAS’s exceptional level of service.”
