DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/70b25c/kenya_tourism_repo) has announced the addition of the "Kenya Tourism Report Q4 2011" report to their offering.

2010 A Positive Year For Tourism

In recent years, there has been a spate of high-end openings in Nairobi, including the 156-room Sankara, the 134-room Ole Sereni and the 162-room Crowne Plaza. These hotels will soon be joined by a Sofitel and a Radisson Blu property. BMI believes that the arrival of this significant number of high-end properties should do much to boost average room revenue rates for Kenya as a whole and aid the development of the wider hospitality sector.

In March 2011, the Ministry of Tourism announced that it would be carrying out a major hotel reclassification process across the country, in an effort to improve standards for visiting tourists. The process was last carried out in 2000 and was marred by allegations of bribery.

In recent years, there has been a steady increase in the number of visitors travelling to Kenya by air, with passenger numbers (arrivals, departures and transit) passing through Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi rising by 8% y-o-y in 2010, to reach 5.49mn. Passengers passing through Moi International Airport (MIA) in Mombasa also rose, by 14.1% y-o-y to reach 1.27mn. The other seven airports operated by the Kenya Airport Authority (KAA) saw passenger numbers of 760,000, making for total passengers handled by KAA of 7.52mn in 2010. In terms of arrivals alone, a total of 1.23mn travellers arrived in Kenya over 2010, making up over half of all visitor arrivals. Rising visitor numbers have led to KAA seeking funding to carry out the modernisation of JKIA, which is ongoing.
