Kenya’s travel sector has experienced a remarkable recovery of up to 90% from the impacts of Covid-19, according to the Kenya Association of Travel Agents (KATA), demonstrating the industry’s resilience and the immense potential for growth ahead.
This came up during a comprehensive familiarization meeting that the Cabinet Secretary (CS) for Tourism and Wildlife, Dr. Alfred Mutua, conducted today with the Kenya Association of Travel Agents.
In the course of the discussions, the allocation of landing rights for airlines seeking direct flights to Kenya emerged as a pressing matter, and the CS promised to look into it.
“We are dedicated to fostering an environment that ensures Kenya remains a premier destination for global travelers. I therefore pledge to bring this matter to my fellow colleagues in the cabinet, and we will endeavor to find an equitable and efficient solution,” said Mutua.
Also present was the principal secretary, State Department for Tourism, John Ololtuaa, and the Tourism Secretary, Dr. Patrick Bucha.
