Etihad Airways is excited to announce the resumption of flights to East Africa, particularly to Nairobi, starting from May 1. The CEO of Etihad Airways, Antonoaldo Neves, emphasized the significance of this new route in strengthening the cultural and economic bonds between the UAE and the vibrant East African region.

Neves expressed his enthusiasm about reinstating flights to Nairobi, a city known for its dynamism and as the gateway to unforgettable Kenyan safaris, a dream expedition for many globetrotters, offering an awe-inspiring glimpse into Africa’s diverse and majestic wildlife.

Moreover, he highlighted the opportunity to extend a warm welcome to Kenyan guests, providing them access to Etihad Airways’ expanding global network. The restored flights not only establish direct commercial passenger connections between Nairobi and the UAE but also enable seamless connections to destinations in the GCC, the US, Europe, India, and South-East Asia.

Neves emphasized the potential for fostering cross-business and trade collaborations between the UAE and Kenya, further enhancing the economic ties between the two nations.

Etihad Airways will operate daily flights to Nairobi, deploying its modern Airbus A320 aircraft equipped with both Business and Economy cabins, ensuring passengers experience the airline’s renowned award-winning service throughout their journey.
