Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) today announced that Kenya Airways, the national carrier of Kenya, will offer three flights a week between Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) and Nairobi, Kenya (NBO) starting from Monday 1st July 2013.
The three flights a week are planned for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and will depart from NBO at 19:25 and arrive in AUH at 01:05 the following day, whilst flights leaving AUH at 2:05 will arrive in NOB at 5:55 on the same day.
"Abu Dhabi International Airport's new partnership with Kenya Airways will provide a vital connection between Abu Dhabi and Nairobi, allowing for increased trade, travel and connectivity between two growing economies in two important regions. The new route will also further enable AUH to act as the Middle East's gateway to Africa, the second most populated continent in the world. ADAC looks forward to providing world-class service to all of Kenya Airways' passengers with Abu Dhabi as their final stop or using AUH as their first step towards another international destination," said Eng. Ahmad Al Haddabi, Chief Operations Officer of ADAC.
Kenyan Airways has also signed a codeshare agreement with Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the UAE. The codeshare agreement will allow Kenyan Airways' passengers to seamlessly connect to Etihad's other destinations, and for Etihad-originating passengers to seamlessly reach new destinations in Africa.
