The Kenya Airways, starting October the 28th, 2018, will start offering non-stop flights to the USA with a new Nairobi-New York route.

Henk Graaff, managing director of destination management company SW Africa, said the new flight is fantastic news for Kenya as well as for the entire East African region and the continent.

Kenya Airways will offer its customers a unique travel experience between two great gateways.

KQ chief executive Sebastian Mikosz, however, said both KQ and JKIA had received the critical approvals and added that the remaining requirements would be met as the airline sets up the route. Direct flights are expected to boost the numbers, with the travel time reducing from about 25 hours to about 15 hours.

The flight is also expected to increase tourism in Kenya, with the USA being its largest source market for tourists.
