Kenya Airways US direct flights set for Oct 28

Kenya Airways will operate a daily non-stop flight to NY with the inaugural flight scheduled for October 28.

Operating a Boeing 787 Dreamliner with a capacity of 234 passengers, Kenya Airways will depart Nairobi at 11:25 p.m. and arrive the next day in NY at 6:25 a.m.

"This is an exciting moment for us".

Travelers heading to the United States of America will from October 28, be able to fly direct from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport using Kenya Airways.

The return flight will depart at 12:25 p.m. and arrive back in Kenya at 10:55 a.m. the day after.

KQ chief executive Sebastian Mikosz, however, said both KQ and JKIA had received the critical approvals and added that the remaining requirements would be met as the airline sets up the route. It fits within our strategy to attract corporate and high-end tourism traffic from the world to Kenya and Africa. Direct flights are expected to boost the numbers, with the travel time reducing from about 25 hours to about 15 hours.

Junior guard Allonzo Trier is averaging 19.6 points per game, while shooting 40.7 percent from three this season. After Sunday's home game against Arizona , the Beavers get No. 8 OR in a home-and-home battle next weekend.

Kenya Airways operates a further 40 routes within Africa from Nairobi.

The direct flight to the USA from Kenya is not the cheapest but the most convenient alternative to travel to the leading Western hub.

The airline already serves Africa, Europe, Middle-East, Indian sub-continent and Asia.

Kenya Airways's attempt to operate this route represents a new frontier for airline travel. Its duration will be 15 hours eastbound and 14 hours westbound.

"First of all [the direct flight] is going to create more jobs in Kenya Airways because we will definitely hire more pilots and more crew". Mikosz revealed the carrier will continue to modernise its fleet though its 32 aircraft are some of the youngest in Africa.

Kenya Airways takes pride in being in the forefront of connecting Africa to the World and the World to Africa through its hub at the new ultra-modern Terminal 1A at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.
