Silverstone has a medium plane . Two folker engine. It's a comfortable flight. The best part is convenience of boarding from Wilson. This saves hours of security checks n traffic with JKIA. Would recommend this flight.

This round trip flight from Nairobi to Lamu was my first experience with Silverstone Air (also first time out of Nairobi's Wilson airport). I had a very good experience overall: check in was smooth, staff were helpful, and the longer leg (Nairobi to Malindi) included a quick beverage service. The pre-boarding waiting area at Wilson was small with very limited...

The staff was nice and friendly. No delays experienced. Good service for a small plane. No seat allocation therefore you may not end up sitting with your partner

The agenet at the counter was most helpful in accomodating me at the last minute, since the Fly540 flight had been delayed by several hours. Although this cost me an additional Kes 7,500/- it assured me that I would be at work the next day a Monday. The aircarft was clean, new and the service efficient on this 40 minute...

As a regular traveler between Nairobi and Ukunda, I decided to give Silverstone a try as their clever advertising and low fares caught my eye. The flight from Nairobi to Ukunda was delayed due to a ‘technical issue’ with the aircraft scheduled to operate the flight. The delay was announced in the appalling departure lounge as being 30 minutes only....

Travelled with Silverstone Air for the first time and it was a very pleasant flight. I loved the convenience that boarding at Wilson offers as opposed to JKIA which is usually very hectic and time consuming. I loved their lounge and staff was awesome. Also try out their cappuccino at the departures Lounge:-)

The competetition now is such that the air fares are also reasonabel and makes a weekend in Nairobi or Diani possible. The aurcarft, Fokker 50, was new and well appointed, the service was good and it...
