AirKenya Opens New Luxury Passenger Lounge

“With AirKenya, Your Safari Experience Begins At The Airport!”

We have finally opened our newly-refurbished passenger lounge.

The exclusive lounge boasts three levels which offer ample comfortable seating space, with the upper lounge providing a spectacular view of Wilson Airport set against a backdrop of the Ngong Hills in the distance.

On arrival at the terminal, you enter a modern, functional space designed with natural tones that echo a “Safari chic” theme. There is a fine display of craftsmanship, with sisal rope walls and beige canvas-upholstered benches with a touch of leather, creating a comfortable and relaxing space.

Here, too, you will find the Banana Box Company, a high-quality in-house safari boutique with an array of hand-made crafts.

The lower lounge displays the fascinating history of AirKenya and bygone days on the walls in black-and-white pictures. There is also extra seating space and adjoining modern washrooms, including one for persons living with disabilities and a baby-changing room.

On entering the upper lounge natural light pours through large windows stopped only by the translucent sisal rope wall, where on display is a superb array of large wall-mounted safari photography.

From the far end of the lounge, a familiar aroma of Kenyan coffee brings you to Brown’s Café, which offers a full menu of organic snacks, breakfast and lunch.

The comfortable seating area in the upper lounge is divided into two. One has an array of beige canvas-upholstered wooden lounge chairs made by Dumont in Kenya, interspersed with stainless steel coffee tables, and the other is decked with white cafe-style wire dining chairs and tables by the Italian designer, Pedrali.

Ceiling-to-floor windows that run the length of the upper lounge give an expansive view of the airside and landscape beyond.
