Etihad Airways is resuming flights to East Africa with daily flights from Abu Dhabi to Nairobi set to start on May 1, 2024.
The new route connects Kenya’s capital with Etihad’s growing global network, and will help foster important cultural and economic ties between the UAE and the East African powerhouse.
Etihad will operate daily flights to Nairobi, utilising the Airbus A320, featuring both Business and Economy cabins.
Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are thrilled to be re-starting flights to Nairobi, a dynamic and exciting city in itself and also the gateway to a Kenyan safari, a dream adventure for many travellers, offering a view of the diverse and magnificent wildlife of Africa.
“Equally, we will be delighted to welcome guests from Kenya to our extraordinary home as well as offering them access to our growing global network.”
The relaunched flights will restore commercial non-stop passenger connections between the two cities, and guests traveling from Kenya will be able to connect with Etihad flights to the GCC, the US, Europe, India and South-East Asia.
The link will further stimulate cross-business and trade opportunities between the UAE and the growing Kenyan economy.
