Kenya Airways increases flights to Johannesburg

Kenya Airways is increasing the frequency of flights between its Nairobi hub and Johannesburg in South Africa, due to growing demand.

Beginning on 1 December, the Kenyan national carrier will introduce four extra weekly flights from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi and OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg.

The new flight will leave Nairobi every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 12.10 and arrive in Johannesburg at 15.15. The return flight will depart on the same day at 16.10, arriving in Nairobi at 21.15.

Kenya Airways said the additional services have been made possible by the company’s recent purchase of a new Embraer E190 jet, part of its ten-year expansion plan.
