BAGGAGE LIMIT 15 KGS IN A SOFT BAG
Is the 15kg baggage allowance inclusive of hand luggage?
What happens if my baggage is over the weight limit?
In most circumstances our Check-in staff will use their discretion and allow a leeway of up to 2 kgs. However additional excess baggage will only be carried at the sole discretion of the captain of the aircraft if the payload of the aircraft and/or space permits and will be charged at the prevailing rate for carriage of freight.
Why do you ask that my luggage is in a soft bag?
Most of our flights are operated by aircraft whose luggage compartments have limited volume and are of an irregular shape. It is thus more difficult for us to stow large rigid suitcases which in an extreme situation might have to be carried on the next available flight.
Is there anywhere I can store any excess baggage?
Yes there is a secure store at our Moi International Airport Mombasa Check-in Counter as well as Malindi and Ukunda Airports.
However no storage is available at bush airfields.
When do I have to Check-In?
The latest Check-In time for all passengers is 30 minutes before flight time at all airfields. MAS reserves the right to depart up to 10 minutes ahead of the scheduled departure time if passengers are not present at the place of departure by that time. MAS has no responsibility for direct or indirect costs resulting from passengers missing a flight due to non-compliance for whatever reason with the above Check-In times.
Departure and arrival times at Mara airfields may vary daily depending on the number of airfields visited.
Where are you located?
MAS is based at Mombasa Moi International Airport gateway to the entire Kenya Coast. The International Airport is 30 minutes drive from Mombasa City Centre and 45 minutes from many beach hotels. The MAS Check In and Offices are at the General Aviation Terminal. Turn right at the roundabout after entering the airport gate.
Can you organize a transfer between Moi International Airport Mombasa and Malindi Airport?
