Air Berlin may add Mombasa to air schedule

Wolfgang H. Thome, eTN  Aug 02, 2010

(eTN) - Germany’s second largest airline, Air Berlin, announced that they are pondering the addition of Mombasa to their long-haul destinations, to be served from Germany’s capital city of Berlin. Other long-haul destinations floated in the press announcement were Dubai in the United Arab Emirates and Miami, Florida.

The airline operates both charters and scheduled services, and it was not immediately clear if the flights to Mombasa would be all-inclusive tour charters, a mix, or purely scheduled flights, on which tour operators, travel agents, and individual travelers could then buy their tickets.

However, irrespective of this, the announcement has excited the Mombasa tourism trade, and in particular the hotel and resort operators, who have already welcomed the idea of more flights between Germany and Mombasa, assisting them with filling beds and reaching their ambitious targets of the highest ever arrival numbers for Kenya in 2010.
