NAIROBI, Kenya, Nov 11 – National carrier Kenya Airways will start weekly flights to Tel Aviv in March next year, according to Kenya Association of Travel Agents.

Israel spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said discussions between Nairobi and Tel Aviv have been concluded and it is now up to KQ to decide when to start.

“There is a great deal of political and tourist importance in the African market. The entry of Kenya Airways into Israel will further improve ties with Kenya and Africa in general,” Nahshon told the media.

The launch of direct flights between the two countries is expected to boost trade and travel between the two countries.

CEO Sebastian Mikosz was in Israel in June where he, among other people, met with the Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz to discuss the plan.

The airliner will also have to secure permission from the Sudanese government to allow the airline fly over its airspace.
