National carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) has announced an increase in the number of local flights in response to increasing demand ahead of the Easter holiday.

The carrier says it will now increase flight frequencies from Nairobi to Kisumu, Mombasa, Eldoret and Entebbe (Uganda).

Travellers on the routes are expected to see greater flexibility in travel between March 18 and April 19.

“We have seen signs of demand from customers who want to visit their family and friends or go on vacation, and their travel booking intent remains largely unchanged. We, however, continue to monitor trends and observe the Covid-19 protocols to ensure passengers comfort and safety even with increased demand,” said KQ Acting Chief Commercial and Customer Officer Juius Thairu.

The airline is expected to operate nine weekly non-stop flights with the Nairobi-Eldoret route operating five new weekly flights in the period.

Meanwhile, the Kisumu-Mombasa route will run two weekly flights between March 25 and April 11.

The Entebbe-Mombasa route will meanwhile operate two weekly flights between April 1 and April 5.
