It is obviously a buy time in the airline industry, with Kenya Airways the latest airline to announce sunstantial changes to its summer schedule.
The good news for European travellers is that flights to London will increase to 10 flights per week on the 322-seat Boeing 777-200, and at the same time Paris flights will increase to six per week during the July-August peak period and the daily Amsterdam capacity will be upgraded using the Boeing 777-200. The downside here is that the Rome service is being suspended indefinately due to insufficient demand.
The airline has also introduced a new direct flight to Dubai which will operate three times a week, with late evening departures from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to capture the late connecting traffic arriving into Nairobi. This is in addition to the airline’s daily Dubai service. It will now operate 10 non-stop flights to Dubai per week.
