flights. All of our hotels are situated along the coast, some distance north of
Mombasa, and we are in constant liaison with our hotel managers, who have reported
that since the unrest begun all has remained calm and customers are enjoying their
holidays. In fact, nearly all of the areas affected by the unrest are over 350 miles
from our hotels, approximately the same distance as London to Glasgow."

their revised flight details. Sykes added, "The majority of our existing customers
who have been contacted are happy that their holidays are still going ahead. Further

holidays cancelled by other Tour Operators who are no longer flying."
