Fly 748 is eyeing significant increase in domestic flight bookings in the last quarter of the 2022 as hard-pressed tourism sector return to pre-COVID level activities.
Aggressive marketing campaigns by tourism and travel industry stakeholders following the lifting of COVID-19 restrictions last year and new perspective on travel and leisure, the airline said are helping drive up numbers.
“The travel and tourism industries are giving travellers more reasons to fly and visit destinations like how it used to be before COVID-19. We are glad that people are also looking to travel even more post-pandemic,” said Fly 748 Managing Director, Moses Mwangi.
Latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, shows Africa’s international arrival numbers have reached 60 percent of 2019 levels, the same level as global figures on strong pent-up demand and easing or lifting of travel restrictions.
Mwangi spoke on the sidelines of this year’s Getaway 2022 Tourism Fair being held at the Sarit Expo Center and running from the 28th – 30th October 2022.
“We are here to showcase exciting travel fares for our existing and new customers. The expo supports our wider initiative of demystifying air travel in the country,” He said.
This annual fair provides the perfect opportunity to adventure seekers to interact and book holiday packages with Kenya’s leading hotels, resorts, lodges, tented camps, airlines, & tour and travel operators for the Christmas season and beyond in a comfortable and secure environment.
Over the last two years the airline has been on an aggressive domestic routes expansion from flying to the Mara only to other destinations that include; Daily flights to Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa and twice weekly to Kisumu.
