KQ increases frequency to Europe for summer 2017
NAIROBI, December 9, 2016 – Kenya Airways will increase its flights between its hub at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and Amsterdam, the Netherlands as well as Paris, France during the 2017 summer schedule.
The airline is set to increase the weekly flights to both European destinations from 7 per week to 9 as from July 13, 2017. The additional flights will be on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays out of Nairobi with returns on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
Kenya Airways Chief Executive and Managing Director Mbuvi Ngunze noted the increased flights were to accommodate the increasing demand from Europe and North America especially during the summer peak season.
“Our schedule enhancement to Europe during the Summer peak will help meet customer demand that is usually more during this period and will also provide our passengers with more flight choices hence more flexibility and convenience connecting to other destinations in Africa and Europe,” said Mbuvi.
The additional flights arrive and depart in Amsterdam in the early morning, providing strong connectivity from Europe and North America.
The Paris route will see a new morning departure out of Nairobi, with return flights from Paris in the evening, arriving in Nairobi in the morning.
The airline has been aligning its flight schedule to offer seamless connections through its hub in Nairobi. The additional flights will offer passengers better connections to the airline’s African network.
