Kenya Airways to launch direct flights to Victoria Falls

Posted 21 February 2017 · Add Comment

Kenya Airways will start a direct flight between Nairobi and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe on May 18, 2017.

This will be Kenya Airways 52nd destination and its second city in Zimbabwe after Harare where it operates 21 flights weekly.

The new route between Nairobi and Victoria Falls will operate three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. The Victoria Falls operation will be linked to Cape Town, South Africa. This will see the airline increase its operations to Cape Town from the current four, which are served via Livingstone, Zambia, to six.

“This new route highlights our strategy to continue ‘Winning in Africa’ which is driven by opening up the region and ensuring our value proposition meets the demands for our customers,” said Kenya Airways’ managing director and chief executive officer Mbuvi Ngunze.

“We have seen increased demand for Cape Town, and had to increase our frequency in December. The route via Victoria Falls offers our guests two leisure holiday options.”
