Kenya Airways to commence flights to Livingstone


(eTN) – News is coming out of Nairobi that Kenya Airways will launch flights to Livingstone, Zambia, in June, then routing on to Harare, Zimbabwe. The available schedule information pegs the operations between June 2 until initially October 25, but if successful might extend further beyond that date.

The aircraft on the route will be an Embraer 190E, which increasingly has turned into the domestic and regional workhorse aircraft for Kenya Airways, as more of these sleep birds await delivery in coming months.

Livingstone and Victoria Falls on the other side of the Zambezi River will jointly host the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) General Assembly this year and as a result expect hugely-raised publicity for the two destinations and the national parks in both countries, resulting in greater demand from tourists keen on seeing the Zambian wilderness areas or Zimbabwe’s ancient ruins.
