Local tourists flock Malindi

21 December 2012, 14:45 Alloys Musyoka

Local tourists are flocking in Malindi via Malindi Airport with all flights during this festive season said to be fully booked.

Malindi Airport Manager Walter Agong said that all flights from Nairobi, Mombasa and Masai Mara to Malindi Airport are fully booked with Kenya Airways having added another flight to manage the number of tourists flying in the area.

"With Kenya Airways adding one more flight to Malindi and the fact that all flights are fully booked it means that  domestic tourists are having their holiday in Malindi," he said.

He said Malindi Airport receives daily Kenya Airway once per day Fly 540 two trips per day and Air Kenya 1 trip per day among other planes.

Chatter planes he added are expected  from Friday this week when Billionaire Flavio Briatore is expected to jet into the country.

Sources said that the Italian billionaire is expected on Friday in Malindi where he is coming for Christmas holiday with his family and friends.

Briatore is one of the Italian investors who have invested in the tourist town owning several investments with one of his unique resorts under construction and is expected to be ready by early next year.

Recently Briatore was in the country and spent a few weeks in Malindi at his Lion in the Sun Hotel accompanied by former Italian Minister Silvio Berlusconi who also sources said is interested in investing in Malindi.
