Starting May 1, 2024, Etihad Airways will be offering daily flights from Abu Dhabi to the lively capital of Kenya. This route not only provides travelers with the chance to explore the vibrant city of Nairobi but also serves as a gateway to the adventures of a Kenyan safari.

ABU DHABI, UAE – Etihad Airways is excited to announce the resumption of flights to East Africa, with daily flights to Nairobi scheduled to commence on May 1, 2024. This new route will connect Kenya’s capital to Etihad’s expanding global network and play a pivotal role in strengthening cultural and economic ties between the UAE and this East African powerhouse.

“We are thrilled to reintroduce flights to Nairobi, a city brimming with dynamism and excitement, and a gateway to the dream adventure of a Kenyan safari, which entices many travelers with its diverse and magnificent African wildlife,” expressed Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways. “Moreover, we look forward to extending a warm welcome to our Kenyan guests in our extraordinary home while offering them access to our ever-growing global network.”
