Valentine’s Day becoming a major factor for East Africa travel industry

Hotels, resorts, safari lodges, restaurants and now airlines too are trying to cash in on Valentine’s Day celebrations this year, more so as the big day falls on a Friday, making it a perfect mini getaway weekend for lovers.

Hoping to bring their destinations within reach, airlines and accommodation providers are inviting Kenyans, Ugandans, Rwandans, Burundians, and Tanzanians to join in on the heartfelt celebrations. International airlines have notably not yet splashed out any special deals tailored for a weekend getaway, seemingly leaving this occasion to the local businesses in the aviation and travel industry.
