Kenya Airways to change London schedule from 27th March 2016

Kenya Airways will change its schedule on the flights between London and Nairobi from March 27, 2016.

From the start of the summer schedule in March, flights will depart Nairobi in the morning to arrive in London in the afternoon on the same day and depart from London for Nairobi the same evening with next day arrival in the morning in Nairobi.

The change is part of Kenya Airways drive for a more passenger convenient service and gives customers a wider choice of connection options to and from Europe into Africa.

Kenya Airways will continue to operate an evening flight departing at 18.25 (new time) from Terminal 4 – London –Heathrow (LHR) to arrive into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Nairobi at 05.00. The early arrival in Nairobi will give passengers smooth same day connections to onward destinations across Africa, and a convenient early morning arrival for guests ending their journey in Nairobi.  The return flight will operate as a daylight service to London, and will depart JKIA at 09.15 to arrive into LHR at 16.15.    

To compliment this new improved schedule, passengers departing Nairobi also have the choice of two evening departures via Paris or Amsterdam to connect into London or regional UK points connecting via the hubs of Kenya Airways partner Air France/KLM.

All KQ flights will be operated with the new B787 Dreamliners and feature our award winning business class cabin and service.
