Kenya Airways has announced an increase in its cargo capacity by doubling its freight frequencies to 7 destinations in Africa.


Kenya Airways Cargo will now deploy its Boeing 737-300F freighter two times weekly to Harare, Lusaka, Entebbe, Dar es Salaam, Juba, Bangui, and Lubumbashi. These destinations are some of the major markets feeding Kenya Airways' entire network.

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

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
