Kenya Airways Flights

Kenya Airways was established in January of 1977 as a state owned airline until 1986, when it became privatised under the new “Economic Management for Renewed Growth” scheme. Since then, Kenya Airways began to develop into the leading Sub-Saharan airline service it is today. To date, Kenya Airways is ranked fourth amongst the top ten flights in Africa by seat capacity.

Currently, Kenya Airways serves both domestic and international flight routes to a variety of different countries worldwide including Asia and Europe.
