KQ to fly to Abuja & Zanzibar

On June 6, KQ will launch flights to the Nigerian capital city of Abuja. Initially there will be four flights a week between Nairobi and Abuja, leaving Nairobi every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, using a Boeing B737-700 aircraft for the 4.45-hour-long flight, before returning the same day to Nairobi from where a range of onward flights to the Gulf, India, and Asia await connecting passengers.

From June 2 onwards, Kenya Airways will also return on the route to Zanzibar with a late evening departure from Nairobi. The daily service will leave the Kenyan capital at 2230 hours and arrive at Unguja, the main isle of Zanzibar, aka the Spice Island, at 2345 hours using an Embraer E190. This flight will be operated in addition to two code-shared flights with Tanzania’s Precision Air which leave at 0810 hours and at 1850 hours daily using an ATR 42 or ATR 72 aircraft, depending on loads.
