Renegade Air Limited says it has launched direct flights from Wilson Airport to Kisumu International Airport. The new airline joins Kenya Airways, Jambojet, Safarilink, 748 Air Services and Fly540 on the Nairobi, Kisumu route.
Mr. Alex Gitari, Managing Director Kenya Airport Authority (KAA) notes that the launch is a reflection of the gradual recovery of the aviation industry which was hard hit by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
“As we may all be aware, the effects of the pandemic resulted in significant decline in air travel. So it is indeed my delight to see the Renegade family launch flights to Kisumu. This demonstrates that the process of recovering is bearing fruits and also complements the steps the authority is taking in ensuring that we get back to where we were prior to the pandemic,” Mr. Gitari adds.
The Kisumu International Airport handles over 30 flights daily with over 1300 passengers per day and the advent of Renegade Air will increase the facility’s passenger numbers and further add the options for air travel to Kisumu; this in turn will enhance ease of doing business in the city.
