Qatar Airways launches second destination in Kenya with new flights to Mombasa

Qatar Airways has added a new route to Kenya’s second city Mombasa – its second destination in the African country – as it already services Nairobi.

The new four-times weekly service from Doha International Airport will be operated from 11 December 2018, with a flight time of just over six hours.

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways sees Kenya as an important market for our passengers, so we are delighted to offer this new service to a second Kenyan destination.

“We are sure our new direct daily service to Mombasa will prove very popular with tourists interested in exploring Kenya’s beautiful tropical beaches and coastline, as well as immersing themselves in the city’s fascinating diverse cultural mix.

“This second new route to Kenya, in addition to our existing three daily services to the capital Nairobi, will help make Qatar Airways the first choice for travellers wishing to explore this beautiful country.

“It also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to expand our reach with ambitious new routes around the globe to offer our unrivalled five-star customer service wherever our customers want to fly.”

Qatar Airways first started flying to the Kenyan capital, Nairobi in November 2005. As part of its continued expansion plans, Qatar Airways plans add new destinations throughout 2018/19, including Gothenburg, Sweden; Da Nang, Vietnam; Tallinn, Estonia and Valletta, Malta, to name just a few.
