NAIROBI, Kenya, Apr 7 – British Airways has increased capacity between London and Nairobi by introducing a Boeing 747-400 adding 784 seats a week on the route.

The larger aircraft will operate during the busy four-month period from July 1 until October 29, after which the service will revert to a Boeing 777 ER.

“We’ve always said that we would add capacity if the opportunity arose. It has and we’ve seized it,” British Airways commercial manager for South and East Africa Edward Frost says.

“The additional capacity and the fact that we offer an overnight schedule should be good news for leisure and business travellers alike. Morning arrivals in London mean that you don’t waste any time on your holiday and business trip. The schedule also allows for convenient transfer times to onward flights particularly to North America.”

For Kenyan customers, the airline is offering a two-week offer with fares to London starting from US$1 115 in World Traveller (economy) a discount of 20 percent.

The offer also extends to US destinations, including New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, with some fares reduced by as much as 50 percent.

The offer extends to the premium cabins with fares in Club World starting from US$2,985 to London.

The World Traveller specials are available for booking immediately and run until April 19 for travel between now and October 31.

The Club World special runs over the same period but outbound travel must be completed by 30 June.
