748 Air Services, travel agents in pact to shore up valentines’ bookings to the Mara

748 Air Services has announced a partnership with travel agents to shore up Valentine’s celebrations bookings to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.

The airline has signed packages with Keekorok Lodge, Mahali Mzuri, and Sarova Mara among others to create a memorable experience in one of the world’s sublime wonders.

“At the moment bookings for Valentine’s are low. We are now meeting prospective travel agents with the hope of enhancing our bookings,” said Mr. Jibril, 748 Air Services Chairman.

A national traveller readiness survey commissioned by The National Tourism Crisis Steering Committee and the Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA) showed that 65 per cent of travellers are willing to travel again domestically, compared to regionally(34 per cent) and Internationally (25 per cent).

“We are offering competitive rates to the Mara compared to other airlines operating from Wilson Airport,” said Mr. Jibril.

To ensure maximum protection against COVID-19, the airline has set up inflight COVID-19 procedures including fumigating the aircraft, taking passengers temperatures, thoroughly sanitizing before boarding and ensuring that everyone including the crew wears their masks correctly.

In the last quarter of 2020, the airline strategically partnered up with various lodges and camps in the Mara and increased frequency of flights to boost domestic tourism.

748 Air Services operates daily flights to the Mara with rates now pegged at USD $206 per person for a return ticket from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport.
