Friday Night Flight: Southern Rift Valley - 280600ZFEB20


African Friday Night Flights are always an amazing experience! For the most part, African airports are ignored, so highlighting them is a pleasure. This week we head to the east coast. This area is known the being the location of the Great Rift Valley. This geographical scar across a huge swathe of Africa is both dramatic yet beautiful.

Airports open will be located generally to the south-east of the main Rift Valley. All of these airports are single runway, however, together offer a huge array of international flights. To cater to the decreased capacity of these airports, the island airports of FIMP/FMEE/FSIA will be open. These provide a beautiful destination to fly to from the main African landmass.

Please note the Nairobi Airport [HKJK] will remain closed to all traffic for the entire day. A TFR will be in place for this.

How Long is the Great Rift Valley?

  • 4500KM
  • 9000KM
  • 6000KM
  • 2300KM
