flydubai direct flights to Mombasa

The Cabinet Secretary for Roads and Transport Hon Kipchumba Murkomen,EGH today afternoon received the first of flyDubai's direct flights to Mombasa at the Moi International Airport Mombasa.

The airline was accorded clearance to begin direct flights to Mombasa in May 2023, and it will have four scheduled weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The first return flight took off today.

The launch of this route is monumental for Kenya's aviation sector and the people of the Coast region since it will increase tourist arrivals to Mombasa from across flyDubai networks leading to the growth of the hospitality and tourism sector, creation of jobs directly and indirectly and the revitalization of the economies of the City of Mombasa and the region at large.

The Cabinet Secretary said that the Ministry of Roads and Transport will continue to capitalize on the visa-free policy initiated by H.E the President to encourage partnership with key players in the aviation sector and engage in mutually beneficial discussions that will result in increased tourist arrivals, job creation and overall growth of the country's economy.

The event was attended by the Cabinet Secretary for Tourism Hon. Alfred Mutua, Mombasa Governor Hon Abdulswamad Nassir, flyDubai's Senior Vice President-Commercial Operations, Sudhir Sreedharam among others.
