748 Air Services has Tuesday reported an 80 per cent booking on its passenger flights ahead of the mega return of the World Racing Championship (WRC) Safari Rally in Kenya this Weekend.
748 Air Service Managing Director, Moses Mwangi said the high passenger traffic is not only attributed to the peak season but also the competitive airfares that 748 Air Services is offering and the anticipated World Racing Championship (WRC) Safari Rally expected to take place from the 24th to the 27th June 2021, in Naivasha.
“We have seen an amazing increase in our flig ht bookings in all the routes in just one month since our launch in Kisumu, Mombasa and Diani. We are projecting that the flight bookings will continue to increase and we will be able to hit and retain more than 80 per cent,” said Mwangi.
Fly 748 has been recording increased passenger bookings over the weekend which is a strong indicator of the rising interest in weekend leisure travel among domestic tourists.
“Our goal is to enable all Kenyans to be able to fly at very affordable market rates. This is a competitive edge that we are utilizing to sustain high bookings,” said Ahmed Jibril, 748 Air Services Chairman.
Last week, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that Kenya is adequately prepared to welcome back the WRC Safari Rally slated for this weekend after 19 years.
“The preparations have been intense and I want to thank all agencies, our private sector, and rally enthusiasts who have given time and effort to ensure that this event takes place,” said President Uhuru Kenyatta in a statement to newsrooms.
The Safari Rally is projected to inject Ksh 6 Billion into the country’s economy.
