Nairobi — Qatar airways has now marked 15-years of operation on the Nairobi-Doha route.
The airline which is one of the few global airlines that never stopped operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, currently operates double-daily flights between Nairobi and Doha serviced by its modern fuel-efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliner, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.
“We are delighted to be celebrating this milestone at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Over the past 15 years, Nairobi has demonstrated its importance as a business and leisure market becoming one of our most popular destinations with global travelers. Residents of Kenya have also benefited from Qatar Airways’ globally connected network and partnerships with local carriers, making us the airline of choice during their travels. Qatar Airways is proud to have provided over a decade of quality international service for our valued travelers in Kenya, and we are looking forward to serving this important gateway for many years to come,” said Qatar Airways Vice President Commercial Africa, Hendrik Du Preez.
Last month, the airline expanded its interline agreement with Kenya Airways to cover 43 destinations across the continent.
