There are many private jets in Kenya

  • Although the number of private jets in Kenya remains relatively small compared to other countries, there are notable players.
  • Kenya Airways was the first company to operate a private jet in Kenya when it purchased a Boeing 737-200 for use by its chairman Daniel Tumwa. This aircraft has since been sold and replaced with newer models, like a Boeing 737-900ER which carried over 200 passengers on its inaugural flight.
  • Other examples of these high-capacity aircraft include an Airbus A319 owned by Microlink International Bank Limited, an Embraer Lineage 1000EQ (formerly owned by Safaricom), and two Bombardier Global Express 6000s operated by Equity Group Holdings Limited and Centum Investment Co Ltd (CICL).
