Kenya Airways #ticker:KQ is set to commence daily flights between Nairobi and New York in October, marking a milestone for the national carrier that will cut the flight time between the two cities by more than seven hours.
Travellers will from tomorrow begin booking advance tickets for the airline’s maiden flight to the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK).
Kenya Airways has already secured a landing slot at JFK.
The trans-Atlantic flights, scheduled to depart Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) at 10:30pm every day, will last 15 hours.
This is a reduction from the current flight time of over 22 hours, including lengthy layovers.
“We are currently loading the flights onto our system. We shall go live and ready for bookings on Thursday,” said Kenya Airways chairman Michael Joseph in a telephone interview.
“The launch of direct flights between Kenya and the United States will mark a significant milestone for the business and for the country.”
