Kenya Airways launches direct flights to Victoria Falls

By Maina Mwangi | May 3rd 2017

Kenya Airways (KQ) launched its inaugural direct flight into the resort town of Victoria Falls from Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

Victoria Falls is now KQ’s second destination to Zimbabwe after Harare where it operates 21 flights weekly. The new route will operate three times a week, including Monday, Thursday and Saturday and will be linked to Cape Town, South Africa.

This will see the airline increase its operations to Cape Town from the current four, which are served via Livingstone, Zambia, to six.

Managing Director and Chief Executive Mbuvi Ngunze said the new route would offer increased connectivity, flexibility and convenience to guests besides boosting the tourism sector in the region.

KQ is the only carrier offering direct services between Victoria Falls and Cape Town.
