New Delhi, capital of India, is to be Kenya Airways newest destination starting 15 May 2012. The much anticipated service from Nairobi marks Kenya Airways 57th global destination and 2nd in the Indian subcontinent.
The airline will operate the eight-hour flight four times a week with a two-class Boeing 767-300.
The new route highlights Kenya Airways ambitious growth plans, according to Dr Titus Naikuni, Chief Executive Officer. "New Delhi is the second city after Mumbai that we will be flying to India, we intend to open four more destinations in the sub-continent as part of our 10-year expansion strategy."
Dr Naikuni noted that the destination has great business prospects as New Delhi is one of the largest cities in India, and the most preferred city in terms of information technology, investments, healthcare and government relations.
India is Kenya's sixth largest trading partner, with a vast business presence in the country. Recently, Kenya-India relations have improved, buoyed by increasing bilateral trade that hit US$4.8bn in 2010/2011. www.kenya-airways.com
