DELTA Airlines is to start direct flights to the US from East Africa. The firm, the world’s largest airline, will make its maiden flight on June 3 from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport via Dakar, Senegal to Atlanta, in the US.

Bobby Bryan, the commercial manager for West and East Africa, said in a statement: “The four-times weekly flight will be the only direct service to the US from Kenya.

“It will offer passengers in the region convenient connections via Delta’s Atlanta hub to over 150 business and leisure destinations throughout the US, including Washington, Boston, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Seattle, as well as throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.”

“Delta will have up to 10 tonnes of cargo space per flight from Nairobi,” said Helena Haubova, the regional manager for cargo sales in East Africa. “The key cargo products we will be transporting are fresh cut flowers, handicrafts, tea, coffee, fresh fish and fresh vegetables,” she said.

The firm is the only American carrier operating non-stop service between the US and Africa.
