Kenya's flag carrier, Kenya Airways announced yesterday that it will resume direct flights from Rome to Nairobi and vice versa next June.
The decision is part of the agreement, only temporarily suspended due to the Covid-19 emergency and subsequent international restrictions, between the Kenyan airline and Alitalia, who will code-share flights, as they are both partners in the Sky Team Arline Alliance. Through this collaboration, flights connecting Rome will be able to enjoy direct connections to Nairobi, as was already the case until 2019 with Madrid, Paris and other international destinations, including the United States, for example. The same will happen in Nairobi, which will be Alitalia's hub for connections with other African airports, with not long waits for Mombasa and Zanzibar, but also Seychelles, Mauritius, Livingstone in Zambia (Victoria Falls). Johannesburg and Cape Town.
Julius Thairu, Chief Commercial Officer of Kenya Airways, announced that direct flights from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Rome Fiumicino International Airport will resume on June 6, with the return flight scheduled for the following day.
The airline will fly to Italy twice a week, on Wednesdays and Sundays.
"We are delighted to resume weekly flights to Rome," said Thairu, "and we will continue to maintain an expanding schedule to various destinations across our network as soon as countries ease their travel restrictions. In the meantime, we will continue to maintain the highest security measures before boarding and on board our aircraft."
