KENYA Airways will offer a direct flight between Nairobi and Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe from May 18.

In a statement on Friday, the airline said this will be its 52nd destination and its second city in Zimbabwe after Harare.

The airline operates 21 flights weekly to Harare.

“This new route highlights our strategy to continue ‘winning in Africa’ which is driven by opening up the region and ensuring our value proposition meets the demands for our customers,” said KQ managing director Mbuvi Ngunze.

Ngunze said the new route will operate three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

He said the Victoria Falls operation will be linked to Cape Town, South Africa.

This will see the airline increase its operations to Cape Town from the current four, which are served via Livingstone, Zambia, to six.

“We have seen increased demand for Cape Town, and had to increase our frequency in December.

"The route via Victoria Falls offers our guests two leisure holiday options,” he said.

The flight will depart in Nairobi at 7.20am, arrive in Victoria Falls at 9.30am, depart Victoria Falls 10.20am and finally arrive in Cape Town at 1.25pm.

The return flight will take off from Cape Town International Airport at 2.15pm, arrive Victoria Falls at 5.10pm and depart Victoria Falls at 6pm and touchdown Nairobi 10pm.

Kenya Airways will be the only carrier offering direct services between Victoria Falls and Cape Town.

This offering will see guests enjoying Victoria Falls from the Zambia side via Livingstone and Zimbabwe side via Victoria Falls.

The route will be operated by Embraer E190 with a configuration of 12 business class seats and 84 economy class seats.
