Kenya Airways has began flying four times weekly from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, the main international airport in Mauritius.
The non-stop flight will depart from Nairobi every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday according to a release by the airline.
The launch of direct flights to the Island nation is Kenya Airways’ 53rd destination overall.
“The Nairobi – Mauritius route will also have great impact on our upcoming non-stop flights to New York by reinforcing its attractiveness to the American Premium Leisure travellers,” he added.
Kenya Airways already has an existing code-share agreement with Air Mauritius. Under this arrangement, there are three weekly flights, which will also be applicable on Kenya Airways’ flights. This brings to seven, daily flights to Mauritius.
