Air France are now back in the Kenyan skies after an 18 year hiatus

As from March 25th, Air France will be part of the joint venture that has been in existence since 1995 between KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and the Kenya Airways, a Skyteam partner. This move will consolidate the Air France-KLM group’s capacity in East Africa.

Air France, KLM and Kenya Airways’ customers will be able to reserve flights operated on a code-share basis by one of the three airlines on round-trip services between Paris-Nairobi and Amsterdam-Nairobi. Travellers will thus benefit from 24 daily flights between Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Amsterdam-Schiphol and Nairobi –

  • 3 flights operated by Air France between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Nairobi;
  • 14 weekly flights operated by Kenya Airways including 7 Paris Charles de Gaulle – Nairobi flights and 7 other Amsterdam Schiphol – Nairobi frequencies;
  • 7 weekly flights operated by KLM between Amsterdam-Schiphol and Nairobi.

With this new agreement, customers will benefit from a streamlined travel experience between Europe and East Africa through the three hubs and improved connections to 26 beyond Nairobi’s destinations –

Addis-Ababa (Ethiopia), Bangui (Central African Republic), Blantyre (Malawi), Bujumbura (Burundi), Dar Es Salaam (Tanzania), Djibouti (Republic of Djibouti), Dzaoudzi (France), Entebbe (Uganda), Harare (Zimbabwe), Juba (South Sudan), Khartoum (Sudan), Kigali (Rwanda), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Kisumu (Kenya), Lilongwe (Malawi), Livingstone (Zambia), Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of Congo), Lusaka (Zambia), Maputo (Mozambique), Mombasa (Kenya), Moroni (Comoros), Nampula (Mozambique), Ndola (Zambia), Seychelles (Seychelles), Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe), Zanzibar (Tanzania).

Air France inaugurates Paris-Charles de Gaulle – Nairobi

In addition, on 25 March 2018, Air France inaugurated its new service connecting Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Nairobi (Kenya). The company will serve the Kenyan capital with 3 weekly flights operated by Boeing 787, equipped with the latest long-haul travel cabins.

Flight times operated (in local time) –

AF814: leaves Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 20:50, arrives in Nairobi at 6:00, the next day.

Flights operated on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

AF815: leaves Nairobi at 08:20, arrives at Paris-Charles de Gaulle at 15:50.

Flights operated on Mondays, Thursdays and Sundays.

This new flight offer is in combination with the daily flights code-shared between Air France and Kenya Airways on CDG-Nairobi.
