748 Air Services has Thursday opened its Mombasa office as it prepares to add more flights on the coastal route.

The airline said the Mombasa office will help it serve its growing customer numbers along the coastal tourism circuit on the back of recovering tourism sector.

“We expect to see increased tourism activities in the coastal routes following the commencement of a nationwide Covid-19 vaccination drive for frontline personnel in the Tourism and Hospitality sector a few months ago,” said 748 Air Services Managing Director, Moses Mwangi when he opened the Office at Moi International Airport.

He added, “the Mombasa Office will help us handle more people who are increasingly gaining confidence to fly again as Hospitality establishments move towards full resumption.”

There will be two daily flights departing from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Moi International Airport in Mombasa.
