Embattled Airline Silverstone seem to have found a way to comeback to the Kenyan skies after an imposed engine halts following numerous sell accidents that put the firm in negative limelight.
In February, Silverstone had announced the intention of coming back to business and they had applied with Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) for the approval of rebranding.
It however now appears that the Airline is already back in operation. Renegade Air which initially operated 3 planes under Governor’s Air has recently acquired a new fleet in their expansion plan. Silverstone aircraft have been included in what could be a new partnership. The airline that has been in operation since 2012 and only operated chartered flights and flights to Wajir County, has announced its expansion to new destinations Masai Mara, Malindi, and Lamu.
Dash 8-Q300 one of the most popular fleets of the Silverstone airline. The Dash 8s was also the reason Silverstone ground to an halt since it was responsible for the most accidents and mishaps.
The gradual process of starting with few routes could be a good strategy to develop customer confidence before they expand to other routes.
