Celebrating 5 Years & Taking It Up a Notch! 🎉 Kenya Airways isn’t just celebrating a significant milestone – they’re soaring higher than ever! Five glorious years ago, they took to the skies, becoming the pioneering and sole carrier to connect Nairobi directly to the bustling city of New York. Since that inaugural flight on 28th October 2018, they’ve welcomed aboard 300,000 eager passengers and transported a whopping 6,000 tonnes of cargo across 1,700 flights.
Broadening Horizons with Delta Airlines 🌍✈️

A Word from the Top Gun at Kenya Airways 🎙️
Allan Kilavuka, the dynamic Group Managing Director and CEO, couldn’t be more thrilled. “These five years have truly been a journey of passion. This Nairobi-New York connection is more than just a route; it’s our commitment to bridging two worlds. It’s a boon for tourism, commerce, and bilateral relations. And guess what? We’re just getting started!”
More Than Just a Flight Path 🌆
This isn’t just about travel; it’s about transformation. The Nairobi-New York route is Kenya’s bridge to North America, enhancing trade, education, healthcare, sports, and leisure opportunities. In return, East Africa has blossomed as a hotspot for U.S. tourism and investments.
