Tui Fly to launch flights to Mombasa


1 min read

European-based Tui Fly is to launch new charter flights to Mombasa later this week.

Tourism and Wildlife Cabinet Secretary, Najib Balala, made the announcement last week that the airline will launch two new flights, resulting in an increase in the number of tourists visiting the Kenyan Coast.

Starting October 26, Tui Fly will fly to Mombasa from Brussels every Friday while Amsterdam flights will commence on November 7.

“We are grateful to this gesture by Tui Fly who has been one of our major supporters and wish to assure them of our support,” said Balala.

He said Tui Poland has also been a significant contributor to bringing in the much needed international tourist numbers with their current three flights a week. “I am duly informed that a fourth flight is on the cards,” he said.

He said there were better prospects for Kenyan tourism with Tui committing a direct flight from London to Mombasa by November next year. “This is great news for our destination as the Government seeks to boost the tourism sector through various intervention measures in place,” he said.
