Bluebird Aviation has announced it’s readiness to help ease current flight disruptions in the country following a strike by Kenya airways pilots.
Bluebird Aviation General Manager, Captain Hussein Mohammed said while other small operators have begun recording an increase in enquiries and bookings, it is ready to take up passengers on charter flights.
“ We are ready to take in passengers on charter flight basis. We welcome all passengers currently stranded in various airports to come and savour our unrivalled experience with more customised services,” said Captain Mohammed.
Kenya Airways on Saturday requested its passengers to cancel their tickets for other available airlines.
More than 10,000 passengers were left stranded on Saturday as aviation workers also joined Kenya airways pilots on a strike to protest against failure to implement a pay rise.
Dozens of flights were disrupted at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi after Kenya Airways (KQ) pilots went on strike Saturday to protest the withdrawal of their provident fund by their employer.
