Kenya Dashes to Exploit the New U.S. Direct Flight

The launch of the extra long haul flight is expected to attract more U.S. corporations into the Kenyan market, to add to the more than 40 that have already set base in Nairobi as their Africa headquarters. The challenge facing Kenya now is to "optimise and utilise the linkages created by this direct flight to create more business, more trade, more investment and, finally, more tourism," according to the chairman of the National Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Kiprono Kittony.
