Very few people in the country own planes, thanks to their hefty prices that have seen owning them seen as a privilege of the super-rich over the years.

But the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) now says that people interested in owning a used plane can get the opportunity within the next one month and can troop in to view planes on offer.

The authority on Tuesday announced that it will be holding a public junk aircraft auction on August 9, 2018, one that will see it hand over planes to interested buyers at a throw-away price.

Through Tandril Limited, the authority has enlisted the planes it seeks to dispose, among them the type 55 baron currently operated by Queensway Air Services.

The plane with registration 5Y-AUS will go for Sh94,300 in the scheduled auction.

Also in the list is a Hulanda plane with registration 5H-KLA which will go for as low as Sh10.045 shillings, in the list that has a total of 12 planes which can be viewed from July 23.

"All interested purchasers are requested to view the items as per the dates and verify their respective details,” reads a public notice signed by the KAA CEO quoted by the Standard Digital.
