Kenya's Phoenix Aviation introduces MD-83s for North Africa and the Middle East

Kenyan operator Phoenix Aviation is introducing an MD-83 which will suit North African and Middle East charter requirements. The aircraft has just returned from South Africa where its interior was completely refurbished. It is now based in Nairobi and is available for charter enquiries.

The versatile EASA compliant aircraft is configured for up to 170 passengers in an economy class configuration and can be converted quickly to mixed business and economy class with 12 business class seats and 146 economy. With a range of 2540nms, self-start capability, forward integral and ventral airstairs, Phoenix says the MD-83 provides a reliable self-contained solution to the region’s transportation requirements

The MD83 has a flying duration of 7 hours and as a European compliant aircraft, in terms of equipment, can operate into and out of Europe with ease. It is available from home base Nairobi or globally for ad hoc charter and short or medium term wet lease (ACMI: Aircraft, Crew, Maintenance and Insurance). The self-start capability and integral airstairs make this aircraft a versatile solution for passenger transport requirements to airports lacking extensive ground support equipment (GSE).
