Kenya Airways has launched flights to Mauritius, which will operate four times a week from June. Monday and Thursday flights will depart Nairobi at 11h45, and on Wednesdays and Saturdays the flight will depart at 21h00.

Kenya Airways has an existing codeshare agreement with Air Mauritius for three weekly flights from Mauritius to Nairobi. With the new service, both airlines can offer a daily service on the route.

“We are very excited by this new opening, which will allow daily connections between two of the most attractive countries in the region,” said Kenya Airways Group md and ceo, Sebastian Mikosz. “The direct flight will enable reliable and convenient connectivity and, in doing so, make Mauritius more accessible to our guests in their bid for economic exchange.”

The route will be operated by an Embraer E190 with 12 seats in business class and 84 in economy.
