Air France introduces new Paris to Nairobi service


1 min read

Effective 25 March 2018, Air France will introduce a new thrice-weekly service between Paris and Nairobi.

The airline will deploy a Boeing 787, equipped with 30 seats in Business class, 21 seats in Premium Economy class and 225 seats in Economy class on the route, with flights departing Paris-Charles de Gaulle on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 20h50, arriving in Nairobi at 06h00 the following morning. The return service will depart Nairobi at 08h20 on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays, arriving in Paris at 15h50.

The new flights will be operated on a codeshare basis with partner Kenya Airways and customers will thus benefit from 10 weekly non-stop frequencies between Paris and Nairobi, with three flights operated by Air France and seven flights operated by Kenya Airways. Moreover, as a continuation of Nairobi, Air France customers will be able to fly to 23 regional destinations* operated under a code-share with Kenya Airways

This new Air France service is also in addition to that of KLM, which operates a daily service between Amsterdam-Schiphol and Nairobi by Boeing 787.
