“The Pride of Africa,” Kenya Airways, announced flights had resumed from Nairobi to Kisumu since December 10, following the successful completion of runway repairs and upgrades by the Kenya Airport Authority.

The airline will fly twice a day, in the morning and late afternoon, and use their new Embraer 170 aircraft on the route. To support the launch commercially, KQ has offered, for the time being, a re-launch fare of only Kenya Shillings 710, return, plus taxes, or a little over US$100. This fare will be available until December 20 and terms and conditions apply.

KQ had previously halted their flights to Kisumu several times when the state of the runway was judged as dangerous to their operation and again a few weeks ago as the available runway length was less than an Embraer 170 required to land safely. Other air operators using different and smaller jets and turboprops were able to continue operations.

The new fare, however, will be a challenge for the competition as KQ is set to wrestle market share back in their favor. Notably, service has been resumed just ahead of the busy festive season when many more people are expected to fly home to Kisumu for the holidays.
