Kenya Airways to Launch Direct Flights to Hanoi, Vietnam
Kenya Airways will become the first and only airline to link Vietnam directly to Africa with flights to Hanoi from 30 March 2015.
Kenya Airways will fly three times a week to Hanoi in a Boeing 787 Dreamliner and will provide strong connections to the key markets in Africa. Hanoi is home to over 7 million people (2013 estimates) and is a rapidly growing municipality.
In 2013, PricewaterhouseCoopers estimated that Hanoi would be fastest growing city in the world in term of GDP growth from 2008 to 2025. Hanoi has a nominal GDP of USD 21.5 Billion and per capita GDP of USD 3000.
To support and enhance this operation, Kenya Airways will work closely with Skyteam partner Vietnam Airlines, whose hub is Hanoi, in order to provide further travel options into Japan, Malaysia, Korea and China.
