Stijgend aantal KLM zetels naar Oost-Afrika

Luchtvaartgroep Air France-KLM reduceert de totale capaciteit komende winter met twee procent. Aangezien de economische crisis ook Afrika niet onberoerd laat, zal de capaciteit waar nodig worden aangepast. Het aantal zetels op Oost-Afrika stijgt echter.

De lijndienst tussen Kilimanjaro en Dar es Salaam wordt omgezet in vijf wekelijkse vluchten, met een verhoging naar een dagelijkse vlucht rond de kerstperiode, uitgevoerd met een Boeing 777-200. Entebbe gaat van vijf naar vier wekelijkse vluchten met een Boeing 777-200 en voor de dagelijkse lijndienst op Lagos wordt aan het begin en het eind van het seizoen in plaats van een Boeing 777-200 een
Airbus A330-200 ingezet. Nu in Kenia de rust is weergekeerd, zal KLM, samen met partner Kenya Airways, twee dagelijkse vluchten aanbieden; een aanzienlijke toename van het aantal stoelen in vergelijking met vorige winter.

Goedkoop vliegen met KLM kan via vroegboekacties van onder meer Joker en Connections vanuit België via Amsterdam op Nairobi of vertrek vanuit Dusseldorf via Amsterdam naar Kilimanjaro.

At the times the tastings took place, the UZT tent was without any doubt thé most popular stand on the Show. Among the participating tasters were the “crème de la crème” of safari & beach property operators in Tanzania including Asilia, Fundu Lagoon, Kempinski, Kirurumu, Lemala Luxury Camps, Nomad, Saadani, Singita Grumeti Reserves, the ATTA African Travel and Tourism Association director and most of the Onsea House preferred operators.

On Sunday evening, the managing directors & owners of several top luxury Tanzania & Zanzibar beach properties picked Onsea House as dinner venue. 

Jan Haasiosalo, the Finnish managing director of the new Zanzibar Retreat Hotel, Bobby McKenna, the managing director of the brandnew stunning Kilindi, a 15 pavillion hotel in Northern Zanzibar, Fundu Lagoon designer & director Ellis Flyte, their general manager Matt Semark, Saadani Safari Lodge managing director Costa Coucoulis and their marketing manager Mark Evans came all for dinner at Onsea House.
