Qatar Airways has unveiled plans to launch
direct flights to Mombasa, Kenya.
Mombasa will be Qatar
Airways’ second Kenyan destination, in addition to existing
flights to Nairobi.
The new four-times weekly flights between Doha
and Mombasa (MBA), scheduled to commence on 11 December 2018, will be operated with an Airbus A320
aircraft, with 12
Business Class seats and 120 Economy Class seats, with a flight time of just over six hours.
Group Chief Executive, Mr.
Akbar Al Baker, said,
“We are sure our new direct daily
service to Mombasa will prove very popular with tourists
interested in exploring Kenya’s beautiful tropical beaches and
coastline, as well as immersing themselves in the city’s
fascinating diverse cultural mix. This second new route to
Kenya, in addition to our existing three daily services to the
capital Nairobi, will help make Qatar Airways the first choice for
travellers wishing to explore this beautiful country. It also
demonstrates our ongoing commitment to expand our reach with
ambitious new routes around the globe to offer our unrivalled
five-star customer service wherever our customers want to fly.”
Bordering the Indian Ocean, tropical Mombasa is Kenya’s main
coastal tourist destination and a popular gateway to the country’s
amazing white beaches and coral reef diving. The cosmopolitan city
has also become a destination in its own right, thanks to its
diverse cultural mix and old town charm.
