The tourism fraternity in Kenya and especially at the Kenyan coast has taken fresh hope during this period of uncertainty when it was reconfirmed that the first of a series of weekly charter flights from Moscow / Russia would be landing at the Moi International Airport in Mombasa this Friday.
Russia is an emerging market for Kenya and was in recent years given some serious attention by the Kenya Tourist Board and the private sector, to attract more tourists wishing to escape the harsh Russian winter and spend quality vacation time at the sun soaked white beaches of the coast or else see Kenyas spectacular wildlife in the national parks while on safari.
Russia has as a result of growing economic prosperity become a leading outbound travel nation and it will be a validation of KTBs marketing strategy to see this new charter bringing hundreds of visitors to Kenya, and hopefully to the wider region too, besides being reassuring that the various scare tactics have not prevented this venture from going underway. Happy Landings!
