Phoenix rises with three Caravan deal

Posted 18 March 2013 · Add Comment

Kenya's Phoenix Aviation has added three Caravan 208Bs to its fleet to support ongoing growth and operational efficiencies.

The Nairobi operator said that the additional aircraft will allow it to take advantage of new market opportunities, particularly with the recent oil & gas discoveries in Kenya.

Director of special operations Steve Parkinson said: “The peaceful elections which recently took place in Kenya make it a prime candidate for local and international investment and the outlook for aviation in Kenya is very positive right now. Through the purchase of these aircraft, we are ensuring that Phoenix Aviation is able to take advantage of these new opportunities as they arise and that we build on this strength to meet our strategic needs in the short to medium term”.
The Cessna 208 Caravan is a single engine turboprop utility aircraft with fixed-gear that seats 12 passengers. Known as the “workhorse” of the Cessna family for its exceptional performance in and out of rugged airstrips, the Caravan is renowned for its reliability and durability.
The first aircraft, 5Y-CBG, is on line and the next two aircraft will be delivered by June of this year. The Aircraft have undergone a major check at a Cessna service centre in Florida, which included new paint and interiors.
