It is seen that over 120,000 Kenyan passengers have flown to Guangzhou since 2015 when direct flights between Nairobi and the Chinese city were established.

 

 

The Southern Airlines increased its Nairobi to Guangzhou flights from two to three.

 

The airline has also added an Airbus 330-200 aircraft to its fleet in Kenya for the additional flight.

 

 

There is already a booming business, leisure and tourism travel market between the China and Kenya. However, this is expected to go a notch higher with the increased frequency.

 

 

The regional sales and marketing Officer Charles Mobe said that said that said that said that with this development, the governments are working together to promote the Kenya–China leisure, tour and travel business.

 

 

For those wishing to travel to the Far East country during the period before the review, free accommodation will be provided once in Guangzhou, for passengers using China Southern Airlines and international code share flights if the flights’ connecting time is more than eight hours, but less than 48 hours.

 

 

The new schedule of flights, which are set to start on July 10, will be on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, with a review scheduled for between then and October 23.

 

 

This latest move by China Southern Airlines is set to ignite an even stiffer competition with the national carrier, Kenya Airways, which also plies the same route, but has in the recent days been facing headwinds, among other airlines plying the same route.
