Kenya Airways says it will begin daily direct flights to the United States in October after years of being blocked by U.S. authorities over security concerns.
CEO Sebastian Mikosz says ticket sales for the non-stop flights between Nairobi and New York are opening on Thursday. The first flight is set for Oct. 28.
“Direct flights between the United States and Kenya will bring our countries closer together, decrease travel time, and increase convenience for the growing number of Kenyans who want to visit the United States and the growing number of Americans who are choosing Kenya as a destination. I was particularly pleased, not long ago, to see that the United States is now the top source of tourists to Kenya. Direct flights are sure to further boost the number of tourists visiting both our countries and deepen our business, trade, and investment ties. ” – Ambassador Robert F. Godec
