748 Air Services meets travel agents to shore up valentines’ bookings to the Mara


Renowned aviation company, 748 Air Services has announced a partnership with travel agents to shore up Valentine’s celebrations bookings to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

In the last quarter of 2020, the airline strategically partnered up with various lodges and camps in the Mara and increased frequency of flights to boost domestic tourism.

748 Air Services
has signed packages with Keekorok Lodge, Mahali Mzuri, and Sarova Mara among others to create a memorable experience in one of the world’s sublime wonders.

The airline currently has flight and accommodation packages covering return flights, full-board accommodation, game drives and round airstrip transfers. These packages can be booked directly from

“At the moment bookings for Valentine’s are low. We are now meeting prospective travel agents with the hope of enhancing our bookings,” said Mr. Jibril, 748 Air Services Chairman.

A national traveller readiness survey and the largest since the start of the global pandemic, commissioned by The National Tourism Crisis Steering Committee and the Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA) shows that 65 per cent of travellers are willing to travel again domestically, compared to regionally(34 per cent) and Internationally (25 per cent).

748 Air Services operates daily flights to the Mara with rates now pegged at USD $206 per person for a return ticket from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport.
“We are offering competitive rates to the Mara compared to other airlines operating from Wilson Airport,” said Mr. Jibril.
The airline strives to maintain higher safety standards on ground and on air. For instance, the Manufacturer Standards and Kenyan Regulations accepts that the Cessna Grand Caravan can be flown by one pilot. However, our stringent company procedure stipulates that the aircraft must be flown by two pilots.

“Our Crew are highly qualified and experienced in flying to areas with both paved and unpaved runways. In addition, all our aircraft are insured in the London market, the most reputable insurance market globally.” Said Moses Mwangi, Managing Director,748 Air Services.

To ensure maximum protection against COVID-19, the airline has set up inflight COVID-19 procedures including fumigating the aircraft, taking passengers temperatures, thoroughly sanitizing before boarding and ensuring that everyone including the crew wears their masks correctly.

748 Air Services (K) Ltd is an Air Charter Company that holds an Air Operator Certificate and an imbedded Aircraft Maintenance Organization; both authorized by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.

Since its inception, 748 Air Services (K) Ltd has grown into one of the most reliable air charter companies in the region, catering to the humanitarian sector, natural resource sector and government institutions.

We lead the flock, with expedient delivery of cargo to remote destinations, or comfortable and safe transportation of passenger.
