Tycoons to clear faulty aircrafts or face auction

Tycoons are struggling to clear their faulty aircrafts currently on auction at various airports in the country after the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) declared them a safety risk.

The KAA, the agency in charge of all airports in Kenya gave the owners of the aircrafts 30 days to claim them or have them sold through public auction.

Some of the 101 aircrafts are owned by politicians and commercial air operators including Jetlink, 748 Air Services and the collapsing Silverstone among others.

The long list of defaulters include state agencies as Moi University , Kenya Police and Somalia Air force whose aircrafts will be sold through public.

The auction is looming at a time when players in the aviation industry struggling with low travels even after Kenya resumed flights in July.

The aircrafts are abandoned at Moi International Airport in Mombasa, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA)m Wilson Airport and Lokichogio Airstrip.

Sixty four of the targeted planes are at the Wilson Airport with five belonging to the Kenya Police Air wing, Moi University, Silverstone and Skylink.

Seventeen other planes including a Sh2 billion Bombardier plane belonging to Jetlink, two Soviet-built passenger planes owned by Somali Air Force and two old Boeing planes registered under Jubba Airways are at the JKIA.
