ABN - Kenya Airways will introduce its 52nd flight route when a maiden flight to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe leaves Nairobi on 18 May 2017.
The direct flight to Victoria Falls, the location of a waterfall on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, will aim to stimulate a rise in tourism-focused travel.
Mbuvi Ngunze, Kenya Airways' managing director said: "This new route highlights our strategy to continue 'Winning in Africa' which is driven by opening up the region and ensuring our value proposition meets the demands for our customers.
"We have seen increased demand for Cape Town, and had to increase our frequency in December. The route via Victoria Falls offers our guests two leisure holiday options.
“The Victoria Falls operation will be linked to Cape Town, South Africa. This will see the airline increase its operations to Cape Town from the current four, which are served via Livingstone, Zambia, to six.”
The new route will initially operate three times a week, and will be serviced by an Ebraer E190 with 84 economy class seats and 12 business class seats.
