Mombasa County is ready to host Qatar Airways.
Speaking in Mombasa during an Iftar dinner hosted by Qatar Airways, Governor Abdullswamad Sheriff Nassir said that the county was ready to host the airlines at Moi International Airport.
“When I got the invite I said ‘I need to be here in person.’ For one reason, to reemphasize, reassure you, and to reaffirm that we are ready to host Qatar in Mombasa,” said Governor Nassir.
In the event that was attended by different Travel Agencies, Governor Swamad said the county was ready to receive direct flights straight into Mombasa.
“When the airline is ready and has made its application, you can count on the support of the governor’s office,” said the Governor.
While addressing travel agents during the event, Qatar Airways East Africa Regional Manager Fadi Zuraikat said “We gather together to share in the spirit of the Holy month. We all know that Travel agents play a crucial part in the industry.”
Fadi said that the airline was growing at an unprecedented rate with a network more than 150 travel destinations.
