Five major airlines will resume flights in and out of Kenya from Tuesday, July 28.
Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala on Sunday said the five airlines are British Airways, KLM, Emirates, Qatar Airways and Air France.
Of the five, Emirates will be the first to resume operations by offering a repatriation flight on Tuesday from Nairobi to Dubai departing at around 4:15 pm.
British Airways will resume on August 1, 2020, operating four flights weekly on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
KLM and Qatar will both resume international travel into and out of Nairobi on August 3, 2020, with the former also offering four weekly flights on the same days as the British Airways.
Qatar Airways said it will offer 14 weekly flights “subject to regulatory approval,” further advising passengers to “check the information published by the government of their destination country before traveling.”
Air France, will resume operations on August 6, 2020 with just one flight to Paris every Friday.
This comes after President Uhuru Kenyatta on July 6, restored both domestic and international flights as part of the phased re-opening of the economy following engagement with aviation stakeholders.
