Qatar Airways will launch direct flights to Mombasa in Kenya by the end of the year, opening up the country’s beautiful coasts to international holidaymakers. Mombasa will be the Doha-based carrier’s second Kenyan destination, in addition to existing flights to Nairobi.
The new four-times-weekly flights between Doha and Mombasa (MBA) will be operated with an Airbus A320, with 12 Business class seats and 120 Economy class seats and a flight time of just over six hours.
“Qatar Airways sees Kenya as an important market for our passengers, so we are delighted to offer this new service to a second Kenyan destination,” said Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Akbar Al Baker.
“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.”
Qatar Airways first started flying to the Kenyan capital, Nairobi in November 2005. As part of its continued expansion plans, Qatar Airways plans a host of other exciting new destinations throughout 2018/19, including Gothenburg, Sweden; Da Nang, Vietnam; Tallinn, Estonia; and Valletta, Malta – to name just a few.
