NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 18 – Kenya Airways has suspended and/or reduced flights on some of its major routes, joining other airlines around the world in grappling with the unprecedented existential threat caused by the novel coronavirus.

The airline says it has reviewed its network and flight schedule to comply with directives issued by different countries across its network in the wake of the virus’ outbreak.

The airline has suspended six routes; these include the Nairobi – London route, the Nairobi – Paris route, the Nairobi – Bangkok route, and the Nairobi – Dubai route.

Two weekly flights on the Nairobi – London route and Nairobi – Paris routes have been suspended effective March 19 to April 16 and March 25 to April 16 respectively.
