Direct flights from Kenya to Dubai launched and price stated

Early on Thursday 17, December 2022, Kenya launched its first direct flights from Mombasa to Dubai.

The Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua presided over the launch at Moi International Airport as the first flight took off.

‘It is a great moment for Kenya as the inaugural flight for our National Carrier, @KenyaAirways, to Dubai from Mombasa’s MIA takes to the skies,” he said.

According to the DP, the event was historic as it is a good way to sustain millions of jobs from the tourism sector.

“By connecting the Kenyan Coast to the Middle East directly, the travel time is effectively reduced, making Kenya the most attractive destination for the Middle East tourists,” Gachagua added.

During the launch, in attendance were CS for Transport Kipchumba Murkomen, his counterpart from Touris Penina Malonza, Mombasa Governor Abdullswamad Sherrif Nassir , Gideon Munagro – Kilifi, Andrew Mwadime- Taita Taveta among other leaders.

However, it will cost up to Sh37,925 to fly from Mombasa to Dubai after the launch of KQ direct flights.

Kenya Airways said the national carrier will operate the route four times weekly, that will be on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.

KQ urged travellers to book their tickets early since the offer of Sh37,925 will only be valid for 5 days after the launch.
