Kenya Airways Launches New Direct Flights to Mauritius
Kenya Airways on Thursday, commenced flight operations between Nairobi and Mauritius giving customers more options to travel to the Indian Ocean Island.
The four-weekly non-stop flight will depart from Nairobi every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday opening gateway opportunities for both Kenyans and Mauritians.
The investment and trade opportunities presented by this direct flight will certainly add value to both countries. We expect to grow tourism for both countries.
Kenya Airways already has an existing code-share agreement with Air Mauritius under which there are three weekly flights, bringing to seven, daily flights to Mauritius.
Located in the middle of the turquoise Indian Ocean and surrounded by perfect white sandy beaches, Mauritius is one of the world’s most renowned paradises.
The tropical island off the coast of Africa has a plethora of resorts and offers a wide range of fantastic experiences from hiking through the jungle to swimming in beautiful and hard-to-find waterfalls, making it a dream holiday destination for tourists from all over the world.
The launch of the new direct flights to the Island nation brings to 53 Kenya Airways destinations across the world.
