2009 News - Holidays - Monarch expands its programme to Kenya for winter 09/10 from Manchester
23 11 2009
Award winning airline Monarch (www.monarch.co.uk), has announced expansion to its Kenya flying programme for this winter season with the introduction of a flight from Manchester.
A weekly charter flight will operate from Manchester to Mombasa* each Sunday throughout the winter season in addition to Monarch’s existing weekly charter flight from London Gatwick.
Commenting on the new service to Kenya, managing director of Monarch Flights and Holidays, Liz Savage said, “Kenya is going from strength to strength with bookings for this winter season up 72% year on year and we are delighted to respond to this demand by introducing a flight from Manchester in addition to our existing services from London Gatwick.
“Adding to Kenya’s popularity is the fact that it is outside of the eurozone where the value of the pound is much stronger and offers a large variety of all-inclusive accommodation, which we know is proving popular with bookers looking to lock in their costs prior to travel. So whether, customers are looking to experience the magic of a safari or simply relax on beautiful beaches, I’m sure Monarch’s flights and holidays to Kenya will be welcomed by the people of the north-west.”
Angie Sloan of the Kenya Tourist Board in London added, “Tourism to Kenya is doing very well and 2009 has been a good year. We look forward to increasing UK visitors from the North of England, which the introduction of Monarch’s charter flights from Manchester will provide.”
Fares on flights to Kenya from Manchester with Monarch start from £402 per person inclusive of all taxes, charges and 20kg of hold baggage. Flights can be booked via www.monarch.co.uk.
In addition to flights, Monarch also offers a huge range of great value holidays, accommodation options, car hire and travel insurance with a two week stay to Kenya starting from just £875** per person (based on two sharing on an all inclusive basis).
