As part of its broad strategy to expand its footprint in Africa, Kenya Airways will launch direct flights to Mauritius with effect from June 2018.
The new four weekly service will operate on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays using a 96-seat Embraer E190 offering 12 business class seats and 84 economy class seats.
On Mondays and Thursdays flights will depart Nairobi at 11:45am while on Wednesdays and Saturdays flights will depart Nairobi at 9:50pm.
Kenya Airways already has an existing code-share agreement on Air Mauritius three weekly flights to Nairobi.
The new service will complement the airlines' existing operations, allowing them to offer passengers daily service between Nairobi and Mauritius with a major beneficiary being the newly launched flights to New York.
