Last week Kenya Airways gave us a taste of what travellers on board the 787 Dreamliner flight were to expect, with a 2 hour test trip around East Africa, though the aircraft is designed to fly long distance, approximately six to eight hours, we flew from Nairobi to Nakuru to Mt Kilimanjaro and down to the Kenyan coast, and back to JKIA.
With bigger dimmable windows, more space for your belongings, state of the art technology, and lower fuel consumption to an amazing rainbow colourâ€™s theme on board, the Dreamliner is indeed a flight full of more than dreams! Not forgetting their excellent service on board from their ever smiling cabin crew.
Having being delivered early April, this was the first Kenya Airways Dreamliner flight to be flown of the six Dreamliners set to be delivered this year, with a plan to acquire 3 more next year.
This first delivery marked the next phase of the airline’s initiative dubbed â€œPlan Mawingoâ€ which eyes greater growth in the Far East routes.
KQ will also receive a B-777-300 aircraft with 400 seats which will be the largest aircraft the airline has ever operated and owned.
The first commercial Dreamliner flight is set to fly from Nairobi to Paris, France in June, with plans to expand the â€œDreamliner networkâ€ as the airline continues to acquire the rest of the purchased Dreamliners.
Well done Kenya Airways, you are indeed the pride of Africa.
