Qatar Airways increases Nairobi route frequency

27th August 2013 Print

As of 1st September, Qatar Airways will operate 18 weekly flights from Doha to Nairobi having introduced four additional flights in order to take advantage of the growing volume of passengers visiting East Africa and increase cargo capacity.

The four additional weekly flights for Qatar Airways’ A320 aircraft will fly in and out of Nairobi on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday will retain two daily flights.

As a key hub for Central and East Africa, Nairobi plays a vital role in the tourism and export industries which are key contributors to Kenya’s economy. As international and domestic visitor arrivals in to Nairobi continue to grow, demand for transport routes is increasing.

East African Affairs, Commerce and Tourism Cabinet Secretary, Phyllis Kandie, welcomed Qatar Airways’ decision to increase the number of flights from Doha to Nairobi.

The increased passenger capacity will positively contribute towards a rise in tourist arrivals thereby helping to spur Kenya’s economic growth and further realize the goals set out by Vision 2030.
