Aviation company 748 Air Services opened its Mombasa Office at Moi International Airport on Thursday as it prepares to add more flights on the Coastal route.

According to the airline Managing Director Moses Mwangi, 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,” Mwangi said.

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