NAIROBI, Kenya Jan 22 – National carrier, Kenya Airways plans to launch flights from Nairobi to Rome, Italy and Geneva, Switzerland on its Boeing 787 Dreamliner four times a week starting in June this year.

Kenya Airways Group MD and CEO Sebastian Mikosz says the addition of flights to Rome and Geneva will be welcomed by both leisure and business customers.

Rome with its status of a ‘global city’ is also rich with history and culture making it one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Geneva hosts the highest number of international organizations in the world such as the United Nations (UN), making it a global hub for diplomacy.

Kenya Airways resumption of flights to Rome and addition of the Geneva route brings the destinations Kenya Airways serves in Europe to 5 and 55 worldwide.

Tickets will be available for sale beginning Tuesday with an introductory price on offer until February 15th 2019 for USD 699 from Nairobi.

“With this route, Kenya Airways will offer excellent connections from these two cities to its 43 destinations in Africa for business, diplomatic missions, and tourism.  It is a perfect complement to Nairobi which is also Africa’s hub for UN among other international agencies,” Mikosz noted.

Kenya Airways launched non-stop flight from Nairobi to New York in October 2018

The airline already serves Africa, Europe, Middle-East, Indian sub-continent and Asia.

The opening of the US destination completes an essential piece for Kenya Airways’ network, cementing its position as one of the leading African carriers.
