Kenya Airways has announced it has begun four weekly direct flights from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius, the company said.
The non-stop flights give customers more options to travel to the Indian Ocean Island.
The airline said this will expand its footprint across Africa. The investment and trade opportunities presented by this direct flight will certainly add value to both countries.
The launch of direct flights to the Island nation is the 53rd destination overall.
Kenya Airways already has an existing code-share agreement with Air Mauritius. Under this arrangement, there are three weekly flights, which will also be applicable on Kenya Airways´ flights. This brings to seven, daily flights to Mauritius.
Kenya Airways Ltd., more commonly known as Kenya Airways, is the flag carrier airline of Kenya. The company was founded in 1977, after the dissolution of East African Airways.
