Kenya Airways begins flying its recently acquired Boeing 787 Dreamliner to Paris from June 3 this year as it boosts capacity to meet the growing demand on the route.
The airline will fly the state-of-the-art aircraft between its hub at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi and the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris, France. At the moment, the route is served by a Boeing 767 aircraft.
Kenya Airways Group Managing Directoe and Chief Executive Officer, Titus Naikuni, said that the advanced features on the new aircraft will deliver a world class experience to customers on the Nairobi-Paris route.
“Paris is a great destination in Europe and our increased capacity there is a strategic move that will offer strong business and cultural opportunities to our customers as well as seek to expand our reach into the European market,” Dr Naikuni added.
The Dreamliner will be departing from JKIA at 22h45 local time every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday; arriving at the Charles de Gaulle Airport in Paris at 06h20 local time. Every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, the Dreamliner will fly from Paris, departing the Charles de Gaulle Airport at 10h55 local time; arriving at JKIA in Nairobi at 20h25.
Kenya Airways received the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, its first ever on April 5, 2014. The aircraft was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta, and named “Great Rift Valley.’
Featuring the very latest in aerodynamics, design and advanced technologies, this highly efficient aircraft provides better fuel efficiency of up to 20 percent compared to other long-haul aircrafts.
The enhanced features of a B787 include a quieter, smoother flight, lower cabin pressure, higher humidity levels and ambient mood lighting, contributing to a more rested feeling upon arrival in addition to cutting edge aesthetics.
These aesthetics include a more spacious interior cabin design featuring larger overhead bins with custom-made seats in both Business and Economy class as well as cleaner air continuously flowing through an advanced filtration system.
