Air France plans to start daily flights to Nairobi from Paris. Arthur Dieffenthaler, the airline’s Eastern Africa General Manager, was quoted speaking at Air France’s first anniversary of the Kenyan route. “We will be increasing our flights on the Paris-Nairobi route to five flights a week. We further plan to launch daily flights in 2020,”
The airline recently increased frequencies between Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG) and Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) from three to five times a week. The additional flights commenced in March. The route is serviced by a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with 30 seats in business class, 21 in premium economy, and 225 in economy.
Air France resumed flights to Nairobi last year after an 18-year hiatus.
