National carrier Kenya Airways will start weekly flights to Tel Aviv in March next year, according to the Kenya Association of Travel Agents.
Israel spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said discussions between Nairobi and Tel Aviv have been concluded and it is now up to KQ to decide when to start.
“There is a great deal of political and tourist importance in the African market. The entry of Kenya Airways into Israel will further improve ties with Kenya and Africa in general,” Nahshon told the media.
