Kenya Airways plans to resume flights to Rome from its hub in Nairobi in June.
Julius Thairu, chief customer and commercial officer of the airline, said in a statement issued that Kenya Airways will continue to monitor and increase frequency to destinations as more jurisdictions open their airspace and ease travel restrictions.
“We are delighted to resume weekly flights to Rome and will continue to maintain an expanding schedule to various destinations across our network as countries ease travel restrictions.
“Our codeshare partnership with Alitalia, offers our customers excellent connections in Rome to rest of Italy, Europe, and USA and in Nairobi to the rest of Africa including Vanilla Islands, ” said Thairu.
Kenya Airways suspended its flights to Rome on April 30 last year after the Italian government placed the whole peninsula on lockdown to fight the spread of the COVID-19 diseases.
In June 2019, KQ increased its European network adding the Rome and Geneva totalling five cities. The others include Paris, London, and Amsterdam. The route had been suspended in 2012.
