Safarilink doubles Diani frequency


(eTN) – One of Kenya’s leading safari airlines, SafariLink, has just announced that they will go double daily from Wilson Airport in Nairobi to the Ukunda airfield along the famous Diani Beach south of Mombasa. They had previously operated a codeshared flight with Air Kenya every afternoon, while leaving the morning flight to them, but recent developments necessitated SafariLink to introduce their own morning flight, conveniently timed for passengers wanting to spend time at the coast.

The inaugural flight will be on September 1, until which time the codeshare with Air Kenya will continue. The good news for travel agents and tour operators is the continued payment of a 7 percent commission for ticket sales on both resident as well as foreign visitor tickets.

The morning flight will leave Wilson at 0945 hours local, arrive at 1115 hours, and then have an ETA at Wilson again at 1300 hours. The afternoon flight will operate out of Wilson at 1400 hours and come back at 1700 hours.

These timings will allow passengers on the morning flights from the various national parks to conveniently connect to the coast, while coast passengers on the morning flight can reach their park destination on the afternoon departures.
