Etihad inaugurates Nairobi service

Etihad Airways’ inaugural passenger flight to Kenya has touched down at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Nairobi. The new daily, two-class A320 service is the airline’s first passenger service to East Africa and an important step in expanding its presence in Africa. The airline will also reach into West Africa with the introduction of flights to Nigeria in July. Etihad commenced operations to the Seychelles in November, and Libya in January, building on existing services to Egypt, South Africa, Morocco and Sudan. The A320 aircraft has 16 Pearl Business class and 120 Coral Economy class seats. (
