I Need Info! Moi Int. Airport, Mombasa(anything)

Mon May 20, 2002 9:29 am

Hello!

I am desperate to find as much information as possible on this airport, what airlines fly there, what there is to do, how big it is, passenger numbers, amount of flights, ANYTHING. But most importantly, is spotting ALLOWED and is it legal? Is there anywhere to spot? HAs anyone been there? I'd love to know!

Thanks

Dan

Jambo Dan!

I was there last year, but only for 24 hours.
The airport isn't very big, with only one terminal.

This is a shot on short final:


When I was there...Only traffic was Air Europe B767, African Safari DC-10, Condor something and a Kenya 737.

I came and went with the crew, so I can't really say anything about if spotting is allowed or not.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help....

When are you going there ?

I was once there. They main thing I noticed is that, due to the climate, the building has almost no glass in the windows. The passenger waiting area is in the open air (with just the roof of the building above). Great experience!

Jambo indeed; one prominent memory is checking-in for our KQ flight to NBO just outside in the car park! Yup, that's where the check-in desks are!! (in front of the terminal entrance).

All a very long time ago, so I can't really be of much help, especially with regards to spotting; not really much traffic there, mostly Euro charters and a few RAF/German AF Hercs if you're lucky.

To be honest, preferred the Indian Ocean beach club, not far from Diani beach-but hey, that's me Big grin

Volare Airlines/Air Europe, use to have many weekly flights from MXP,VRN and FCO (mainly in the winter season). They fly there with A321 with a refuel stop in Luxor or non-stop with B763 and sometime B772.
The widebody flights sometime continue to Zanzibar.

Hi! Thanks to all who replied, and great to see some people have been here!

First, to Tommy: You wouldn't happen to have a large version of that photo, would you (I mean, 1024x..), b/c I'd really like to see if there seems to be anything down there. Who were you flying with? I'll be there from... 7th August until the 14th (I think), although I'm not entirely sure (July has 31 days, right? Big grin).That is an awesome picture!

Air Orange - Wow, no glass? Well, I think I'll be on Kenya Airways so it'll most likely be a 737, hopefully i'll be able to get a couple of shots of that and anything else that comes in!

From Tommy's picture, looks like it could be a great place to spot, apart from the lack of traffic  Big grin. I have asked a Kenyan travel representative to get as much info on planespotting as possible, so hopefully that'll yield some positive results.

Hi Dan,

No I'm sorry. The shot is from the video I shot. Didn't have the chance to take slides as well this time.
I took this from the jumpseat of Air Europe B767 EI-CNS.

From my experience, (24 hours), I suggest you are careful with your cameras and stuff if you're planning on going around the field.
Same in the city, if you're shooting citylife shots....

Enjoy the time there...It's very nice!
