Fly-SAX, Kenya’s premier safari and private charter airline, is pleased to announce the launch of a new international route to the Union of the Comoros (“the Comoros”). Flights between Nairobi and Moroni, the capital of the islands, will commence on 18 October. With two return flights each week, Fly-SAX is significantly increasing the connectivity between the Comoros and the African continent and ensuring greater passenger choice.
The launch of the Comoros route furthers Fly-SAX’s offering of serving the best beach and safari destinations in and around Kenya. The network currently includes the beach destinations of Lamu, Malindi and Ukunda; and the safari locations of Amboseli, Loisaba, Nanyuki and Maasai Mara.
“We’re delighted to be expanding our flight network with a further international route,” said Don Smith, CEO of Fly-SAX. “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, characterised by picturesque sandy beaches, the largest of which is Ngazidja (‘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.
Flights to Prince Said Ibrahim International Airport in Moroni will depart from Jomo Kenyatta Airport in Nairobi every Monday and Friday morning, with flights to Nairobi from Moroni on Monday and Friday afternoon.
