Advantage Air (Nairobi Wilson) is planning to add an undisclosed number of DHC-8-Q400s and has acquired Quick Change conversion kits from De Havilland Aircraft of Canada for the turboprops.

The Kenyan cargo specialist, which currently operates two Fokker 50(F)s, has not disclosed any further details about its Q400 ambitions. It did not respond to ch-aviation's request for comment. It has yet to be authorised to add the type to its Air Services Licence, although it recently secured a geographic extension of its air services licence. It can now fly non-scheduled passenger operations to/from points in Eastern, Central, and Northern Africa, Indian Ocean islands, and the Middle East; plus domestic non-scheduled passenger flights.

The ch-aviation fleets module shows that fellow Kenyan carrier Bluebird Aviation (Kenya) (BBZ, Nairobi Wilson) already operates three converted DHC-8-Q400(PF)s.
