The national carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) resumed its direct flights between Nairobi and New York on Sunday.
In a tweet on Sunday afternoon, the airline announced that customers, who will book flights before December 10, will enjoy discounted prices.
“Welcome back to the Big Apple (New York)! Today we resume our service between Nairobi and New York, and we can’t wait to welcome you onboard, ” the airline said.
“Book your ticket via https://kenya-airways.com/en-ke/flights-to-new-york before December 10th to enjoy discounted rates.”
The national carrier last operated the passenger flights using the Nairobi-New York route in April after disruptions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We regret to announce that due to increased cancellations of flight bookings to New York City, we have pushed back the resumption of our service to this destination to November 29. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused,” read the statement then.
After Kenya resumed international passenger flights on August 1, 2020, KQ reduced its routes by half, dropping nonstop flights to and from the US due to low demand.
