The airline filed a lawsuit on Monday (July 26th) against the national carrier for malicious damage to its property worth millions of shillings and harassment of its employees.

“In the meantime, a temporary injunction is and is hereby issued prohibiting the plaintiff by himself or his servants and / or agents from interfering with the defendant / plaintiffs, the quiet use and occupation of the ownership of the suit pending the inter-party hearing of this application, âMakau said. .

On Friday, July 23, armed police and more than 50 men raided 748 Plaza along Airport North Road in Embakasi, smashing the glass door at the entrance to the premises and severely damaging office furniture and accessories.
In an affidavit dated July 26, 748 Air Services general manager Moses Mwangi said the raid disrupted the normal operations of the Embakasi office, leaving the airline with significant losses.
âThe actions of the plaintiff have caused and continue to cause heavy losses to our company, being an airline that recently launched domestic flights to Kisumu, Mombasa and Diani,â Mwangi said.
In addition, after the incident, more than 200 airline employees were still unable to access the premises and locate important documents, files and machinery.
“We have always enjoyed a peaceful and calm occupancy of the premises from the start of our lease agreement on February 1 until the applicant and his agents raided our offices on July 23, 2021,” Mwangi added. .

748 Air Services paid rent for the 748 Plaza located on plot no. G / D. No. 9042/583 to African Airlines International Limited (formerly African Express Airways International Limited).
The airline was in the process of completing renovations to the costume scene which amounted to KSh 90million before the raid.
At the time the raid began, 748 Air Services had not received an order to vacate the scene and had only learned of an order served on the owner of the premises, Captain Musa Hassan Bulhan, Managing Director, Africa Express Airways Limited and African International Airlines Limited at 4:00 p.m. before Kenya Airways agents removed their office supplies.
In an emergency certificate filed by the company on Monday through its lawyers, 748 Air Services asked to be heard as a matter of priority because the orders issued on July 16 continue to have far-reaching negative effects.
The carrier, however, wishes to inform its valued customers that all flights, including the recently launched domestic flights to Kisumu, Mombasa and Diani and freight services, will continue as planned.
