Important information for passengers

Weather plays an important role in the daily operations of small aircraft, especially in the inland Game Reserve areas where strong thunderstorms and wild weather patterns prevail.

As safety is the number one factor, flights may be delayed to allow weather to pass through. But this is why we choose to travel to Africa, to leave our comfort zone and experience some adventure!

Baggage Allowance

As with most domestic airlines in East Africa, and especially those servicing islands and remote airstrips, weight is a critical factor for these small aircraft, as is the limited size of the cargo bay.

  • 15 kg per passenger.
  • Only soft shell bags are recommended to ensure they can get into the cargo pods / holds.
  • Excess baggage will be taken at an additional fee but is not guaranteed passage on the same flight as the passenger.

There are strict limitations for carry-on / cabin baggage. This is limited to small personal effects such as cameras, documentation, laptops and medication.

If in any doubt about baggage specifications, please contact the airline on +255772771770.
