Kenya Airways To Introduce Direct Flights Between Kisumu and Mombasa During Easter
National carrier Kenya Airways has announced plans to introduce two weekly flights between the lakeside city of Kisumu and the coastal city of Mombasa during the Easter Holidays season. The flights will run from 15th March 2021 to 11th April 2021. The airline has also announced new direct flights between Entebbe and Mombasa, and Nairobi and Eldoret.
The airline says the new routes and increased flight frequencies are aimed at meeting the expected increased travel demand during the Easter holiday. Travellers on these routes will enjoy greater flexibility during the festive period from 18th March to 19th April 2021.
The airline will operate a total of 9 weekly non-stop flights with the Nairobi-Eldoret route operating five new weekly flights from 18th of March to 19th of April: Kisumu-Mombasa route operating two weekly flights from 25th of March to 11th April 2021 and the Entebbe-Mombasa route operating two weekly flights from 1st April to 5th April.
Kenya Airways Acting Chief Commercial and Customer Officer Julius Thairu – while acknowledging that the situation remains fluid – says that the scheduled enhancement will help meet the growing passenger demand during this period and provide more choices, flexibility, and convenience.
“We have seen signs of demand from customers who want to visit their family and friends or go on vacation, and their travel booking intent remains largely unchanged. We, however, continue to monitor trends and observe the Covid-19 protocols to ensure passengers comfort and safety even with increased demand.”
The Easter celebrations are part of the airline’s commitment to enhanced customer experience with unique and seasonal offerings.
