Kenya Airways increases Mombasa frequency

NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 29 – National flag carrier Kenya Airways moved to satisfy demand for air travel during the holiday season by increasing its flights frequency to the Coastal city of Mombasa to 14  from 10 daily.

The higher number of flights was accompanied by a special reduction in air fares to Sh7,999  as the airline kept abreast of the rising demand for air travel among local tourists and businessmen.

Kenya Airways Chief Operating Officer Bram Steller said in a statement from the head office that the carrier had responded to a growing tendency by Kenyans to travel by air especially for the high season and targeted Mombasa as the destination with the highest population of travellers.

“Kenya Airways decided to give Kenyans air fares that are affordable for our quality of aircraft and service and demand for domestic destinations that we serve has risen tremendously,” Mr Steller said.

“We are fully committed to offering a superior, value driven product that gives travelers a reason to choose us over the competition,” Mr Steller said.

“We’ve already seen stronger customer response to our more aggressive pricing strategy and continued focus on customer service excellence, resulting in record bookings over the past month. With today’s announcement, we offer great service and customer-friendly schedules to all the towns we serve from our JKIA hub.”

He noted that Kenya Airways was consistently on a drive to build its fleet and to grow operational efficiency for both passengers and the airline.

He explained that the airline had acquired additional aircraft including a Boeing 737-300 and Embraer 170s for both domestic and regional service.
