Kenya Airways has announced plans to launch four weekly flights to Mauritius beginning June this year. KQ Managing Director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz said the move will complement the existing operations by Air Mauritius and allow both airlines to offer passengers a unique daily product between Nairobi and Mauritius.
Mikosz said: “We are very excited by this new opening that will allow daily connections between two of the most attractive countries in the Region. Furthermore, this new flight will have a great impact on our New York flight as it will improve our attractiveness on the Premium Leisure segment.”
The national career will operate flights between Nairobi and Mauritius on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.
