Jambojet, the low cost airline Kenya Airways, has leased a new aircraft, a Bombardier by 78 places, to serve as necessary by the Nairobi and Malindi airports Ukunda (Diani) without disruptions as occurred during the holiday season (read the article by Malindikenya.net on the accommodation protests).
The new aircraft, arrived from Qatar, will be made available as soon as possible to cover the tourist routes, with an eye for the weekend and in anticipation of the upcoming Easter holidays, when you expect a decent flow of domestic tourism from the capital.
Despite the CEO of Jambojet, the Dutchman William Hondius, has ensured more attention to the coastal destinations of Kenya, hotelier and entrepreneurs remain skeptical moderately on the work of the Low Cost.
"With all due respect - explains Roberto Marini, owner of Ocean Beach Resort and member of the Task Force of Tourism in Nairobi - I no longer trust the Jambojet and I hope that by the parent Kenya Airways arrivals sign that the tourism sector is expected: the restoring Kenya Airways flights to Malindi with a program of direct connections with international flights, from Ethiopian who would be interested. as for Jambojet, delays and disruptions continue even in these days. "
25 weekly flights from next December 20th from Nairobi to Malindi and return coinciding with the Christmas holidays and year-end.
Program that will probably last for three weeks.
What if Malindi and Zanzibar were to share tourists, planning a week-long holiday with them?
And what if from Entebbe and Kampala, metropolises that have no sea, arrived Ugandan families on holiday in Watamu?
More: what if all...
It has been a long time since the possibility that Ethiopian Airlines, the Ethiopian national airline, could include Addis Ababa-Malindi in the near future, coinciding with its flights to Rome and Milan.
