Kenya Airways will begin flying its recently acquired Boeing 787 Dreamliner to Paris from June 3 this year as it boosts capacity to meet growing demand on the route.
The airline will fly the state-of-the-art aircraft between its hub at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi and the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France. At the moment, the route is served by a Boeing 767 aircraft.
Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Titus Naikuni, said that the advanced features on the new aircraft would deliver a world class experience to customers on the Nairobi-Paris route.
The Dreamliner will be departing from JKIA at 2245 hours local time every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday; arriving at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris at 0620 hours local time.
Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, the Dreamliner will fly from Paris, departing the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris at 1055 hours local time; arriving at the JKIA in Nairobi at 2025 hours.
