Kenya Airways will increase the capacity on its Kisumu and Mombasa routes by 5 and 6 flights respectively during the Easter holiday as a result of ‘the very high demand for travel’.

The airline will upgrade a total of 6 flights to operate the Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the Nairobi-Mombasa route; 2 flights on Thursday 18th April, 1 flight on Good Friday, 1 flight on Easter Sunday and 2 flights on Easter Monday.

Kenya Airways will also schedule an additional flight to Kisumu on Thursday 18th and Monday 22nd April operating the Q400 aircraft. This will increase the number of flights to the Lakeside City from 4 to 5 on both days.

“The increased capacity will give our customers greater choice and flexibility in planning their travel during this peak travel period. Our customers to Mombasa will also get a chance to experience the state-of-the-art Dreamliner which usually operates on international routes,” said Kenya Airways Group MD and CEO, Sebastian Mikosz.
