Traffic situations in Mombasa has become a nightmare. Tourists arriving at Moi International Airport often spend hours in traffic if they have to be transferred to hotels situated at the south and north coast of Kenya. Many clients are therefore using companies such as Scenic Air Safaris to transfer them from the airport to an airstrip close to their hotels, thus beating the traffic. Tourists staying at the resorts of Malindi make use of the flights as it cuts the transfer time from almost 3 hours to about fourty-five minutes. VIP guests enjoy an even better service as Scenic Air Safaris will pick them up at the gate and assist them through immigration and baggage claim, a service which becomes more and more popular.

During a strike at the Likoni ferry last December, which connects Mombasa Island with the southern coast, Scenic Air Safaris has rearranged its flights to transfer guest from Diani to Moi airport to ensure they catch their return flight. As it turned out, the service was very well accepted by clients who otherwise would have been stuck at the ferry for hours.

Scenic Air Safaris operates two Cessna Grand Caravans with VIP interior and one Cessna 206. All the aircraft can be used for transfers and charter flights to any destination in Kenya and neighbouring countries. The flight time to Malindi is about thirty minutes, Lamu can be reached in 60 minutes and Diani is just a small hop of ten minutes.
