Leisure airline, Eurowings Discover – a subsidiary of Lufthansa Group, commenced its flights on July 24 with two weekly flight services from Frankfurt, Germany to Mombasa, with onward flights to the region.
Speaking during the reception of the inaugural flight at the Moi International Airport Mombasa, Cabinet Secretary for Tourism and Wildlife Najib Balala said that the flight was a testament to the strides Kenya is making in the recovery of tourism activities, which were minimal due to restrictions brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Kenyan coast is a popular destination for European tourists adding that the flight would create a link between Kenya and European travellers.
Kenya has been making great progress as a destination in attracting tourists from different markets and especially from Europe.
This flight is yet another milestone in the recovery of activities in the country. The Kenyan Coast is especially showing great interest from tourists from across Europe and beyond.
A few months ago, we received the first ever Romanian charter followed by another charter from Ukraine in Mombasa. The commencement of flights by Eurowings Discover will help us link with both Business and leisure clients from Germany and the region,” said CS Balala.
