Emirates Airline to open office in Mombasa

Middle East’s largest airline Emirates is planning to open a sales office in Kenya’s second-largest city of Mombasa to tap into the rapidly growing market from the popular tourism destination.

Emirates which currently doesn’t fly to Mombasa, would greatly benefit passengers who need to fly to Nairobi first in order to enjoy their bi-daily B777 service.

The Dubai-based airline is keeping up with stiff competition posed by other international airlines, Etihad and Qatar Airways, which fly daily to Nairobi and have started daily flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport.

As at 2010, Emirates was the 6th largest airline in the world in terms of international passengers carried, as well as the largest in the world in terms of scheduled international passenger-kilometre flown.
