Kenya Airways will this June begin flying four times a week to Mauritius, giving customers wishing to travel the route more options.
The national carrier said that the new flights will also set it up to take advantage of traffic between the United States and Mauritius, a popular destination for Western tourists, once it launches direct flights to New York in October.
“The Nairobi-Mauritius route will have a great impact on Kenya Airways upcoming direct non-stop flights to New York by reinforcing its attractiveness to American premium leisure travelers,” the airline said in a statement Tuesday.
KQ, as the airline is commonly known, will fly on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday to the Indian Ocean archipelago.
The carrier already has a pre-existing code sharing agreement with Air Mauritius, which flies between Port Louis and Nairobi on the other days of the week.
This will mean that passengers from Kenya will from June have the option of flying daily to Mauritius.Back to news articles
