Kenya Airways launches direct flights to Mauritius
Kenya Airways has began flying four times weekly from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, the main international airport in Mauritius.
The non-stop flight will depart from Nairobi every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday according to a release by the airline.
The launch of direct flights to the Island nation is Kenya Airways’ 53rd destination overall.
“The Nairobi – Mauritius route will also have great impact on our upcoming non-stop flights to New York by reinforcing its attractiveness to the American Premium Leisure travellers,” he added.
Kenya Airways already has an existing code-share agreement with Air Mauritius. Under this arrangement, there are three weekly flights, which will also be applicable on Kenya Airways’ flights. This brings to seven, daily flights to Mauritius.
