Local aviation firm, Jetways Airlines, is set to launch daily flights to Diani in November targeting tourists visiting the Kenyan Coast famous for its white sandy beaches and marine sports.

The airline will operate two daily flights to and from Wilson and Ukunda Airstrip. This will be the second scheduled flights route for Jetways, which also flies the Wajir.

Ukunda Airstrip is used by both commercial and chartered aircrafts. Passengers will pay Sh10,000 for a one-way ticket. The firm is flying to Wajir at a promotional fare of Sh6,000.

The airline says it is targeting holiday makers visiting Southern Coast regions that include Tiwi, Diani, Galu, Kinondo and Chale Island.

“Diani Beach is one of the most exclusive locations for Kenya beach holidays and has consistently been voted one of the top beaches in Africa…it is home to several organisations such as The East African Whale Shark Trust which works to protect whale sharks,” reads a statement on its portal.
