About Us

748 Air Services 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 has grown into one of the most reliable Air Charter Companies in the region, catering to the humanitarian sector as well as to the natural resource sector and government institutions.

The primary business of 748 Air Services is the provision of air charter services for passengers and cargo. Our proficient and professional staff together with our versatile aircraft fleet enables us to meet all air transportation requirements, be it the expedient delivery of cargo or the safe, comfortable transportation of passengers.

We take great pride in our quality service delivery to our clients, which has resulted in their continued support throughout the years. Yesterday's marketers thought that the most profitable skill was the ability to find new customers but today's understanding is different – keeping, expanding, growing and understanding the ever changing needs of current and new customers is key.

In 1995, 748 Air Services Ltd was established by a group of individuals who were committed to provide aviation support to relief and humanitarian organizations working in the remote areas of Sudan, Somalia, East and Central Africa. Directed by one of the founders, Ahmed Rashid Jibril, a chartered accountant with a passion for life changing initiatives, grew the company from an initial single plane cargo operation to a more complex passenger/cargo service enterprise that touches and enhances the life of many.

748 Air Services Ltd borrowed its name from the Hawker Siddely 748 aircraft as a way of honouring the first aircraft in our fleet.

In 2002, 748 Air Services Ltd built a full service camp in Lokichoggio, Northern Kenya to provide a high level of service and comfort to the humanitarian aid sector within the region. The camp continues to be fully operational and is the epicenter for all NGOs and Government travellers in the region.

Drawing on years of experience, innovative new ideas, solid values and unsurpassed quality control, 748 Air Services Ltd continues to forge new pathways on its incredible journey towards unimagined success.
