Air France will resume its flights between Paris and Nairobi starting March 2018.
Its return was announced on Monday and will operate three weekly flights between Charles de Gaulle and Jomo Kenyatta International using a Boeing B787-9.
In a notice, the company said: “Air France in summer 2018 season plans to resume service to Kenya, as the Skyteam member schedules Paris CDG — Nairobi operation. From 25 March 2018, Boeing 787-9 aircraft will operate this route three times a week. Reservation for this route opened late last week.”
