The direct international flights to Malindi, dreamed imagined and expected at least two decades, they look really at the gates.
After the assurances of President Kenyatta in recent days, surrogate by the facts that they see completed expansion of the maneuvering areas and parking of boeing and fences, further confirmation of the will to operationalize the status of "international" in the coastal town comes from Minister Najib Balala that, far from good ears to bounce the electioneering and Malindi and Watamu entrepreneurs to keep good, confirmed to the German press that the time for the opening of direct flights from Europe to Malindi are quite short.
Balala, in Germany at the international tourism fair ITB Berlin, presenting the increasing data of 2016 (1.300.000 tourists, 11% more than last year) and trusting in an even more marked increase in 2017, is back on 'topic of direct flights from Europe to holiday destinations in Kenya.
Obviously this will be discussed after the August national elections this year, but if the times of the other phases will be respected, already in 2018 you could think of indirect flights, and the following year in those who do not make stopovers.
Balala said that the operation of the Malindi international airport comes under this project which will have to contemplate in 2025 the annual presence of 25,000 foreigners in Kenya, both for tourism and for business.
Malindi from this point of view is deemed important for both the one and for the other.
