Etihad Launches Flights to Kenya

Etihad Airways today announced the start of flights to Nairobi, Kenya – its first destination in East Africa.

A daily service from Abu Dhabi to Nairobi will begin on April 1 next year, operated by a two class A320 aircraft with 16 Pearl Business class and 120 Coral Economy seats.

Nairobi becomes the 72nd destination in Etihad’s global network and the return flights will create a new link between the two capital cities of Kenya and the United Arab Emirates, and onwards to Pakistan.

“This new route will allow Etihad to tap into large traffic flows between East Africa, North Asia, and the Indian Subcontinent,” the airline‘s Chief Executive Officer, Mr James Hogan, said.

“Our strategy is to target areas of strong growth in emerging economies such as North, East and Central Africa and we have a number of other destinations under active consideration.

“The upcoming flights will have daily connections from Karachi, Lahore & Islamabad from Pakistan – facilitating the business travellers from both Kenya and Pakistan to smooth travel and playing a vital role in the travel and exports between the two countries”
