Information was received overnight that Kenya will soon see another airline making regular visits to Nairobi. Starting on 16th December will Royal Jordanian commence flights to the Kenyan capital Nairobi, initially 4 times a week every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with the respective return flights taking off from JKIA in the early hours of Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Royal Jordanian will be using an Airbus A319 on the route in a two class configuration. The new connection will open up further opportunities for trade and doing business between Jordan and Kenya, if not East Africa as a whole and will in turn allow also for visits to parts and areas of the Holy Land located in what today is the Kingdom of Jordan. Travellers using Royal Jordanian should use the opportunity to stop over in Amman and visit the ancient city of Petra and capture some of the history made in this part of the world.
This move is preceded by the launch of flights to Lagos which will commence on December 03rd, initially served twice a week using an Airbus A330.
