By KBC Reporter

Kenya Airways has increased capacity on the Mombasa route to meet demand this holiday season.

The airline will deploy the Dreamliner, Boeing 787, on December 23rd and 24th.

The Dreamliner has a capacity of 234 seats, 30 Premier Class and 204 Economy, compared to the 96 seats on the Embraer 190, 12 Premier and 84 Economy, that serves the route.

The Dreamliner will also operate the route on January 2nd and 3rd.

“We have seen increased demand on the Mombasa route ahead of the festive season necessitating the need to increase capacity. Kenya Airways plays a major role in boosting the economy of Mombasa during the festive season when demand mainly driven by the domestic market increases,” said Kenya Airways Director of Marketing and Communication, Chris Diaz.

Kenya Airways normally operates 10 flights on the Nairobi – Mombasa route.

The airline has also seen increased bookings on the Kisumu route.
