NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 1- America\’s Delta Airlines has announced that its anticipated flights to Kenya this June will connect through Senegal.

According to a statement from the airline, Delta is introducing new international routes between the United States and Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East, to protect itself from a slowing U.S. economy.

"The new four-times weekly flight will be the only direct service to the United States from Kenya" said Bobby Bryan, Delta\’s commercial manager for West and East Africa.

The statement further indicated that this new flight will provide connections between Kenya and Senegal via Nairobi, where passengers can take advantage of several connections to other East African cities such as Mombassa, Kigali, Entebbe and Dar es Salaam operated by SkyTeam partner, Kenya Airways.

Delta’s direct service between Nairobi and Atlanta will operate using a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with up to 216 seats.

The new flight from Nairobi is scheduled to operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The airline will be the only carrier to operate services between North, East, South and West Africa and the United States and will operate from nine cities in seven African countries.

Delta currently operates flights from Cairo, Accra, Dakar, Cape Town, Johannesburg and Lagos.
