Lufthansa Increases Capacity on Frankfurt-Nairobi Route

German airline Lufthansa is set to deploy larger aircraft and increase its frequencies on the Nairobi-Frankfurt route on what it linked to 'huge potential'.

The airline says it will deploy the wide-bodied Airbus A340-300 between Frankfurt and Nairobi four times a week beginning September this year, up from the current three weekly flights.

The four weekly flights will initially be scheduled on Tuesday, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. It will offer a total capacity of 298, from the current 89.

Following the October last year re-launch, Lufthansa offered three weekly flights on the narrow-bodied Boeing 737-700 operated by Swiss based Private Air.

Lufthansa, one of Europe's biggest airlines, resumed direct passenger flights to Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport from late October 2015 after an 18-year absence from the Kenyan capital.

According to International Air Transport Association (IATA), demand is holding up in Africa despite the under performance of Nigeria and South Africa. East Africa is delivering above average economic growth when the rest of the world is struggling to grow.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
