Kenya Airways launches direct flights to Mauritius

Kenya Airways has begun flying four times weekly from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport in Mauritius.

The non-stop flight will depart from Nairobi every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.

“This is part of our strategic intent to expand our footprint across Africa. The investment and trade opportunities presented by this direct flight will certainly add value to both countries. We expect to grow tourism for both countries as we strive to offer our passengers affordable and improved connections from both the Nairobi and Mauritius hubs,” said Jan De Vegt, Chief Operating Officer, Kenya Airways.

Kenya Airways already has an existing code-share agreement with Air Mauritius. Under this arrangement, there are three weekly flights, which will also be applicable on Kenya Airways’ flights. This brings to seven, daily flights to Mauritius.
