Edelweiss reduces Kenya schedule


Edelweiss, the Swiss charter airline, has decided to withdraw its flights to Mombasa, Kenya, between 5 May and 29 September 2014. The airline has been flying to the Kenyan coast for a number of years, regardless of season, but has now decided to scale back its operation to both Mombasa and Kilimanjaro.

According to Michael Trestl, air development manager at Edelweiss, reasons behind this decision include a lack of demand, especially for Mombasa, and operational reasons.

The airline will continue its scheduled flights to Kenya during the European winter season, 30 September to 4 May, as residents up north escape the plummeting temperatures for sunny holiday destinations.
