Kenya Airways Launches Non-Stop Flights to Cape Town

Nairobi — Kenya Airways has introduced three non-stop flights from its hub at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Cape Town, South Africa.

The launch of the non-stop flights to the second-most populous urban city in South Africa is in line with the airline's broader strategy to assert its presence and expand connectivity across Africa and open up opportunities for tourism, trade and investment.

The non-stop flights to Cape Town will depart Nairobi every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 3:30pm.

"We are indeed very proud to increase our frequencies to South Africa to cater for the growing number of our customers who travel between Nairobi and Cape Town. In addition to enhancing Africa integration, this new route will be beneficial to the tourism industry as it establishes vital links with our global network," Kenya Airways Chief Commercial Officer, Vincent Coste said.

Currently, the airline operates seven weekly flights to Cape Town. Four flights via Livingstone, Zambia, departing Nairobi every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and three weekly flights via the resort town of Victoria Falls Falls on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

This brings to a total of 10 weekly flights to Cape Town from Nairobi.
