Kenya Airways resumes Dubai flights


Kenya Airways plans a route network review programme that will affect a few of the routes in its network.

The carrier says the network review is routine and is informed by the return to air travel as the aviation industry recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result some routes will have frequency increment, frequency reduction, schedule changes, suspension and postponement of route opening.

The route network review programme will affect both local and international routes and will be adjusted as the world continues to open up and opportunities for growth continue to show themselves.

Changes include frequency increase for London route throughout Winter from planned five times weekly to daily, marking the fastest recovery to pre-Covid schedule.

Operation day will change for Juba-Khartoum route to cater for Sudan Weekends (Fridays and Saturdays) by operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays effective Feb 20, 2022.

There will be a reduction of frequencies on Nairobi-Kisumu over low season from 26 times to 17 times weekly from Feb 15, 2022.

The carrier will postpone the Milan and Rome launch previously planned for June 8, 2022. The postponement is in light of reduced passenger demand as a result of slower than expected recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The suspension of Yaoundé destination by May 31, 2022 was also announced.
