Kenya Airways is set to resume daily flights to the US East Coast city of New York beginning June, upping the number of flights from 5 days a week to daily. The national carrier has also announced a codeshare with Delta Airlines, opening up travel to a host of other destinations in the US and Canada.
The arrangement, which encompasses cities such as Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Miami, Phoenix, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, is an opportunity for travelers to connect from New York, using the direct flight from Nairobi.
“As part of our commitment to the New York route, we are proud to be a part of this partnership that will open up opportunities for our customers to access more destinations in North America through the John F. Kennedy Airport.” says Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz.
In October 2018, Kenya Airways launched the East African Community’s first direct flight from Nairobi to New York.
