Kenya Airways continues their expansion with the announcement of the commencement of daily operations to Mogadishu, Somalia with effect from Thursday, 15th of November, 2018.

The airline will fly seven times weekly, operated by Jambojet on the Bombardier Dash 8 Q400. The flight will depart Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) at 07:40, and depart Aden Adde International Airport, Mogadishu at 10:45 to arrive back in Nairobi at 13:00.
