Kenya Airways Suspends Flights Between Nairobi and Jeddah
Kenya Airways will suspend direct flights between Nairobi and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia with effect from September 12, 2018.
Passengers travelling to Jeddah after September 12, 2018 will be rerouted or rebooked through Kenya Airways partner airlines.
The decision to suspend flights to Jeddah is consistent with Kenya Airways’ strategy to improve its network efficiency and focus on the high yield Corporate and Premium Leisure segments.
The suspension will not affect those travelling for Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia. This year, the 5-day pilgrimage will be concluded on 24 August 2018.
Kenya Airways introduced direct flights to Mauritius as well as non-stop flights to Cape Town in June and will launch a daily non-stop flight to New-York on 28th October 2018.
