Kenya Airlines Starts Daily Service To Nigeria

Samuel Mogere, the acting Kenyan High Commissioner to Nigeria, announced that Kenya Airways will start operating daily flights to Nigeria as part of an initiative to open up Kenya to the globe.

At the Magical Kenya road show on Wednesday in Abuja, the high commissioner made this statement.

He stated that the current Kenyan government is committed to uniting Africa, and that ensuring that Nigerians can travel to Kenya stress-free and easily on a daily basis is a necessary step in that process.

He added that the Kenyan government has instituted an online e-visa application process, allowing individuals to apply and have their visas granted for travel to Kenya without having to go through the onerous process that was previously required for visa processing.

Speaking during the event, Alex Tunoi, the marketing manager for the Kenya Tourism Board, explained that the roadshow was part of the tourism board’s diversification strategy to boost arrivals from Africa, as that region is the main focus of Kenyan tourism.

According to Steve Biko, regional sales manager for Sarova Hotels and Resorts in Kenya, Nigeria is a key market for Kenya due to its sizable population and frequent traveler base.

Currently, the airline operates flights between its hub at Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi four times a week. There were direct flights to Abuja on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
