Kenya’s local low-cost carrier Silverstone could soon be back in full operations after the country’s aviation regulator lifted a suspension on part of its fleet.

The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) had last week suspended the carrier’s Dash- 8 fleet from flying for seven days to allow inspection after a sequence of mishaps.

The move affected eight of its 14 fleet of aircrafts which also includes Fokker and CRJ Series aircrafts.

“KCAA wishes to inform the public that the provisional suspension of the Silverstone Air Services limited Dash 8 Series Aircraft Operations imposed on November 12, 2019, has now been lifted,” Director General Gilbert Kibe said in a statement.

KCAA is the state corporation responsible for regulating the aviation industry and providing air navigation services.
