GetJet Airlines, an IOSA-certified Lithuanian ACMI and charter carrier, will operate direct flights to Kenya as part of its charter services for the upcoming winter season.
The renowned Lithuanian wet lease and charter airline, has joined forces with Central Europe’s leading tour operator, ITAKA, to offer travelers an unprecedented winter vacation experience. This collaboration is set to enhance the winter holiday offerings for travelers, with a particular focus on providing direct connectivity to Kenya, specifically to the vibrant city of Mombasa.
Leonidas Močeņovs, CEO of ITAKA, expressed his enthusiasm about this partnership, emphasizing ITAKA’s commitment to surprising travelers with new and unexplored destinations. “This year’s most unique destination is Kenya. We are happy that in cooperation with GetJet Airlines, we will be able to offer travelers direct flights, ensuring the highest quality of services,” said Močeņovs.
Rūta Kulvinskaitė, CEO of GetJet Airlines, underscored the significance of this partnership in expanding their flight routes. She highlighted that this collaboration would allow them to introduce non-stop flights to Kenya, covering a distance of over 6,000 kilometers and providing Lithuanian travelers with unprecedented access to this exotic destination.
The collaboration will commence with flights to Marsa Alam, Egypt at the end of October 2023, followed by five direct flights to Kenya in early 2024. According to Močeņovs, the challenge of operating direct flights to Kenya, which can take up to 11 hours, made the choice of flight partner crucial.
ITAKA, a major tour operator in Central Europe, extends its operations not only in Lithuania but also in several other European countries. The company organizes travels to more than 15 different countries around the world, offering regular and charter flights from Lithuania.
GetJet Airlines has been providing charter flights and ACMI services worldwide. Their diverse fleet, comprising Airbus A320, Airbus A321, and Boeing 737NG aircraft, enables them to serve customers across more than 170 airports in over 50 countries, including esteemed airlines such as Wizz Air, Finnair, Transavia, Iceland Air, TUI Airways, Vueling, and others.
