Kenya's national carrier, Kenya Airways (KQ), is set to increase its connection to London with the introduction of two daily flights to the British capital, effective October 29 2023.
This strategic move promises to offer passengers enhanced travel options, convenience, and flexibility in choosing their flight times.
In a statement, Kenya Airways unveiled its plan to double the number of flights to London, thus significantly bolstering the travel link between Nairobi and the United Kingdom. Currently operating 10 weekly flights, the airline is poised to increase this figure to 14, in response to the growing demand for the route.
"Kenya Airways to Increase Flights to London to 14 Times Weekly Customers to enjoy increased travel options with two flights per day," the official statement by KQ read in part.
The new schedule will allow passengers to choose between morning and evening flights. The morning flight, identified as KQ100, and the evening flight, designated as KQ102, offer passengers the flexibility to align their travel plans with their preferences and schedules.
To cater to the heightened demand on this route, Kenya Airways is deploying the cutting-edge 8787 Boeing Dreamliner aircraft, renowned for its superior comfort and efficiency.
"KQ will deploy the 8787 Boeing Dreamliner on the route, bringing the total weekly flights to 14 up from 10. The additional week)/ flights will cater to the increased market demand for this route and growing passenger demand," KQ stated.
