From February 6, Kenya Airways will add flights on its Nairobi-Seychelles route, bringing the service to daily. The extra flights will operate on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Sherin Francis, said: “The seven-days [a week] direct flights would definitely make Seychelles more accessible to a few of our important markets, such as the North American market.” And with Kenya Airways always being a steady and reliable partner for Seychelles, Francis believes the new development will only strengthen the partnership.

Kenya Airways launched a direct non-stop flight between New York and Nairobi in October 2018, and the additional flights to the Seychelles will create more opportunity and capacity for travellers from the US to visit the islands, connecting via Nairobi.

Kenya Airways is the longest-serving airline in Seychelles, having flown to the islands for the past 41 years.
