FLY-SAX SET FOR COMOROS FLIGHTS
(Posted 07th October 2013)
Information was just confirmed that SAX, one of Kenya’s private charter and safari airlines, will commence flights to the Comoros on Friday 18th of October. Initially the airline will serve Moroni twice a week, leaving Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport on Friday and Monday morning, with the return flights on the same day in the afternoon.
The launch of the Comoros route adds to Fly-SAX’s beach and safari destinations in and around Kenya. The network currently includes the coastal destinations of Lamu, Malindi and Ukunda and the safari locations of Amboseli, Loisaba, Nanyuki and Maasai Mara.
Said Don Smith, CEO of Fly-SAX in the media release just received: ‘We’re delighted to be expanding our flight network with a further international route. The Comoros is a beautiful and developing tourist destination that is not adequately served at present. Our new flights will significantly enhance passenger choice as well as support the continued progression of the islands through increasing accessibility with the continent’.
The Comoros is an archipelago consisting of four islands, characterized by picturesque sandy beaches, the largest of which is Ngazidja or Grande Comore, which is home to the Union capital and seat of the government, Moroni. The islands are located in the Indian Ocean, in the Mozambique Channel, just 200 miles off the east African coast.
The Comoros is a member of the Vanilla Island Organization which was recently launched, comprising Reunion, Mauritius, Madagascar, Mayotte, the Seychelles and the Maldives.
