Kenya Airports Authority to auction dormant aircrafts

Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) will auction off a huge list of aircraft that have been abandoned at four of its airports in just a few weeks. The aircraft types are numerous and diverse, ranging from the Russian An-24 to the classic 737-200. There’s even a 707-300 number! All of these aircraft have ridiculously low beginning bid costs. Let’s see what you can get for less than the cost of a run-down old car.

The list of more than 70 aircraft is extremely broad, and we will include it in full ((with prices)) at the end of this post. Given the initial worth of each aircraft and the level of finance required to operate each aircraft, we can assume that each plane has a unique tale explaining why it was abandoned.

According to ch-aviation, potential purchasers must pay a deposit of 100,000 Kenyan shillings every item. This is roughly similar to $900.

If the bid price is less than the deposit amount, the difference will be returned upon presentation of the receipt. If the bid price is more than the deposit, the bidder must pay at least 25% of the whole amount, with the remaining due within 24 hours. If payment is not received, the sale will be canceled, and the deposit will be forfeited. The procedure will then be repeated with the item’s second-highest bidder.

The cost of officially owning the airplane may end up being a fraction of the cost of taking possession of your new acquisition. Indeed, transporting inoperable airplanes or restoring them to functional condition is almost certain to be prohibitively expensive.

The problem appears to be even more difficult when you consider that auction winners have seven days from the date of the auction to remove the aircraft. In the absence of this, KAA will levy a storage fee of 10,000 Kenyan shillings ($90) per day. Items that are not picked up within two weeks will be forfeited.

The “image” designed by the brain’s mechanisms when reading is truly vivid and empowering. So writing for that vision is truly an enormous representation of art. Aviation is truly a limitless wave of adventure and exploration and you will find the right “image” in my writing.
