Tickets for Kenya Airways first flight to U.S. go on sale
14 January 2018, 12:49 | Jan Cross
The new international arrival terminal at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport
The airline on Thursday began selling advance tickets to passengers for its maiden October 28th flight to JKF airport in NY.
Kenya Airways becomes the first airline to offer a non-stop flight between East Africa and the United States of America.
Operating a Boeing 787 Dreamliner with a capacity of 234 passengers, Kenya Airways will depart Nairobi at 11:25 p.m. and arrive the next day in NY at 6:25 a.m. "It fits within our strategy to attract corporate and high-end traffic from the world to Kenya and Africa". It will depart Jomo Kenyatta airport at 23:25, arriving at JFK airport at 06:25 the following morning, with return flights departing NY at 12:25 and landing in Nairobi at 10:55 the next day.
The flight is scheduled to take 15 hours, a departure from the previous flight time of 22 hours including lengthy layovers passengers from JKIA had to cope with using connecting flights.
"This is an exciting moment for us", says Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Sebastian Mikosz.

Meanwhile, Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers will try to get to the conference championship for the second straight year. Derrick Henry is coming off a 156-yard effort against the Chiefs as Tennessee's offensive line wore down Kansas City.
Kenya Airways has opened ticket sales on its website after ditching earlier plans to use a code share deal with partners on Sky Team to operate the Nairobi, New York route. From New-York it will depart at 1225 and land at JKIA at 1055 the following day.
According to the carrier's officials, they have already been allocated a landing space at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Similarly, European carriers including British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM and many more provide flights that connect through airports in their home countries. Though they are not known for luxury, extremely cheap tickets or any other differentiating factor, they are going to help passengers cut down on one measure that so often determines which ticket people purchase: time of travel.
Flight time between Nairobi and NY will be reduced from over 22 hours to 15 hours.
"This is a symbol of a comeback by Kenya Airways".
