Kenya Airways has introduced an additional flight to Bujumbura in Burundi. The new flight to be operated by Jambojet on a Bombardier Q400 will be a direct flight and is set to reduce waiting times and offer better connections to Kenya Airways growing European and new America service.
The new flight will operate in the afternoon and will be in addition to the current daily morning flight that operates on the route on the Embraer 190. It appears that route has been a success so far hence the decision to introduce an extra flight
The additional direct flight to Bujumbura will increase travel and trade amongst East African Community (EAC) countries as the common market protocol is already in place. The protocol has paved way for free movement of labour, goods and services within the region.
Kenya Airways Group Managing Director & CEO Sebastian Mikosz had this to say, “This increase to our local and regional Network is part of our strategic intent to expand our footprint across Africa.”
