Freedom Airline is a premier Aviation Services Provider, having successfully scaled altitudes to become the region’s most envied and trusted airline.

The company’s leadership believes in upholding high safety standards, by keeping airworthy aircrafts through meticulous maintenance.

Over time, Freedom Airline has invested heavily in a state-of-the-art maintenance division, led by a very dynamic team of engineers with global experience. The engineers, who have a combined experience of more than two decades have put the company at the apex of air safety in Kenya, even as the country’s global ratings continue to improve.

In 2017, Kenya’s air safety score was 78 percent, a 16 percent improvement from 2008, according to data from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The score places the country seventh in Africa and at position 67 out of 185 states in the world.  ICAO’s Universal State Oversight Audit Programme measures a country’s air safety based on eight factors: air crash investigations, civil aviation organization, airfields and ground aids, aviation legislation, aircraft operations, air navigation services, personnel licensing and training, and airworthiness of civil aircrafts.

Kenya’s best mark was in aircraft airworthiness, in which it scored 95 percent. Airfields and ground aids came in second with 87 percent whereas personal licensing and training had 83 percent.
