Air India eyes Nairobi again after 7 year absence

AIR INDIA SET TO COMPETE WITH KENYA AIRWAYS ON MUMBAI TO NAIROBI ROUTE

(Posted 11th May 2017)

Air India, a Star Alliance member, is once again on the expansion drive with more long haul destinations being launched this year.
New services to Washington, Stockholm and Los Angeles will be followed by Tel Aviv, Dallas and notably Nairobi later this year.
While no date has been set is there speculation that Air India will commence flights to the Kenyan capital with the start of the traditional winter season airlines observe.
The Indian flag carrier withdrew from Kenya in 2010 leaving the route entirely to Kenya Airways but has now apparently decided that there is enough traffic between the two countries – India is now in the top five of Kenya’s visitor source countries – to justify resuming daily flights.
