Kenya Airways’ to commence double daily services between Nairobi and the Western Kenyan town of Eldoret, effective 02nd June.
Currently KQ operates 11 times a week on the route and the addition of three more flights on Monday, Tuesday and Sunday will bring the number to 14.
The airline uses Embraer jets on the route and offers both business class and economy class on all services.
The move signals Kenya Airways continued and almost relentless drive to effectively cover the domestic services from Nairobi to Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret and Malindi with enough departures to offer their clientele the choice of multiple daily flights, except for Malindi which has a single frequency per day, all aimed at increasing market share. Frequent flyer miles are rewarded on domestic flights too, giving KQ a competitive advantage over their local rivals which lack similar incentive and loyalty schemes.
