NAIROBI, Kenya Aug 21- Kenya Airways (KQ) has migrated 11 additional flights to the new ultramodern Terminal 1A at its Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) hub.

From August 21, the airline will be operating a total of 15 flights from the new terminal, which is for exclusive use by Kenya Airways and its SkyTeam partners.

The flights will be departing to Delhi, Luanda, Dar-es-Salaam, Entebbe and Johannesburg.

Kenya Airways CEO Titus Naikuni said that the new terminal has state-of-the-art facilities that will contribute towards providing a world class experience to guests.

“We are excited to increase the number of flights operating from this modern terminal. All the facilities in it are as good as anywhere else in the world. It will significantly enhance the quality of service. We have developed a timetable to progressively increase the number of flights that are processed from Terminal 1A,” Naikuni said.

Kenya Airways began using Terminal 1A on Tuesday last week starting with four flights.

The flights that will be operated from the terminal are to Delhi (KQ220), Luanda (KQ770), Dar-es-Salaam (KQ480, KQ482, KQ484, KQ486 and KQ488), Entebbe (KQ410, KQ412, KQ414, KQ416 and KQ418) and Johannesburg (KQ760, KQ762 and KQ764).

Terminal 1A has capacity to handle one-way peak hour traffic of 1,500 passengers and up to 2.5 million passengers every year.

It will initially handle only departures but is expected to be fully operational by 2015 after completion.
