Renegade Air (not my airline) has launched flights from Kenya’s capital city (Nairobi) to Homa Bay (in the Western part of the country. Last month, the same airline launched flights to Kisumu city and is offering a promotional offer of USD 46 (one way) to Kisumu.
Using a Cessna Caravan (carrying 12 passengers), the Homa Bay route is about USD 70 one way. It says a lot about the state of aviation that a flight of less than 200 nautical miles should cost that much.
However, kudos to Renegade Air, which only started operations in 2015, for expanding the routes. So far, from Nairobi, this airline serves the following destinations: Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Malindi, Lokichogio, Kigali, Marsabit, Loyengalani, Ileret, Kapese and Nariokotome.
