Siginon Aviation

Siginon Aviation is a leading player in ground handling operations. We have been in operation since 1997 in the East African region with operations in both Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and at the Eldoret International Airport (EIA).

Following consultation with various aviation industry experts and taking into account the airline customer’s demands for a safe, secure and efficient cargo handling, Siginon Aviation embarked on the over USD 10 Million dollar, state of the art air cargo terminal on the airside of the JKIA Airport in Nairobi, Kenya. This unique facility boasts of having the longest access to the airside as well as offers the unique proximity to the passenger terminal. This therefore provides ease in handling cargo loaded in a freighter or passenger aircraft.
