Kenya Airways will launch its first non-stop service between Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Cape Town International Airport, South Africa starting from 6 June, 2018, according to Routesonline.
Although, the airline is yet to officially announce the route, a dummy booking by The Afritraveller on the airline's website confirmed the new non-stop service.
A Boeing 737-800 will operate this nonstop service 3 times a week, on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Flight KQ784 will leave Nairobi at 15:35 and arrive Cape Town at 20:20.
