Swedish charter airline returns to Mombassa

Novair to fly from Sweden to Kenya every two weeks

The Swedish charter airline Novair has resumed its flights to Mombassa for the first time since Kenya’s post-election violence in 2007-08. Flying every two weeks from Sweden to Mombasa and attracting tourists from all over Scandinavia, the arrival of the airline’s A321-200 with a capacity of 211 passengers is a vote of confidence in Kenya’s tourism industry, said Jennifer Opondo of the Kenya Tourist Board.
Mombasa Private Safaris general manager Cleophas Mong’are: “We are happy now that KTB in conjunction with Private Safaris have managed to bring the Scandinavians back. We hope for the best.”
