Restrictions on Fly Me around East Africa and Fly Me to the Beach (&Beyond Mnemba Island)

  • Due to fewer flights and guests, caused by the impact of COVID-19, airlines will require a minimum number of seats booked on a flight to confirm operation of service. These requirements are often only confirmed nearer to departure.
  • This will affect the rate of the package, as the cost is based on two guests sharing.
  • When a provisional booking is made, the airline may advise that a fare is subject to a minimum number of passengers, in which case a supplement to take the higher fare into account will be included in the package rate.
