The route will complement the existing operations by Air Mauritius and allow both airlines to offer passengers a unique daily product between Nairobi and Mauritius.
The Nairobi – Mauritius route will have a great impact on Kenya Airways up coming direct non-stop flights to New York by reinforcing its attractiveness to the American Premium Leisure travellers.
Commenting on the launch, Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz said: “We are very excited by this new opening that will allow daily connections between two of the most attractive countries in the Region. Furthermore, this new flight will have a great impact on our New York flight as it will improve our attractiveness on the Premium Leisure segment.”
The existing code-share agreement with Air Mauritius’ three weekly flights will also be applicable on Kenya Airways’ flights. The national carrier will operate from June 2018 with four flights a week.
Kenya Airways will operate flights between Nairobi and Mauritius on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
