Korean Air to increase Nairobi flights

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 16 – Korean Air will soon begin transporting Kenyan coffee and flowers directly to Korea, Japan and China.

This comes after the Asian Airline announced plans to increase its frequency to Kenya from the current three times weekly to daily flights.

Korean ambassador to Kenya Kim Chan Woo says will save on costs and time the two Kenyan products took to be exported into the three nations through some Western capitals.

Kim who was speaking during a courtesy visit to Tourism minister Danson Mwazo’s office also encouraged Kenyan businessmen to use the airline as entry point into the Asian markets.

The Airline received a flood of criticism from Kenyans when it released an offensive advert on its website that it has since removed and apologised for.

Korea Air that launched direct flights to Kenya in June plans to use Nairobi as key entry point to better compete in the regional airlines market.

Korean Air has been serving major destinations in Africa through code sharing with Kenya Airways, one of the SkyTeam alliance members.
