Kenya Airways will resume twice-weekly flights from Nairobi to Mogadishu, starting on February 14 next year
Julius Thairu, Chief Commercial and Customer Officer of Kenya Airways, said the reintroduction of flights would encourage trade and ease the movement of tourists as demand rose among businesses and travellers.
"We are eager about the potential of re-establishing the link between Mogadishu and Nairobi through KQ," Thairu said in a statement,
The route was suspended in August 2020 due to the global pandemic.
“The resumption of Mogadishu flights is part of Kenya Airways network expansion strategy and commitment aimed at enhancing connectivity across the African continent to contribute to long-term economic progress,” said Thairu.
The flights from Nairobi to Mogadishu will depart Wednesdays at 14h00 and arrive in Somalia at 15h45.
On the same days, the flights will depart at Mogadishu at 16h35 and arrive in Nairobi at 18h20.
