Kenya Airways flies to Juba at last


Kenya Airways (KQ) has at last confirmed that they will commence daily flights on their Embraer 170 jet aircraft from June 7, closing a huge gap in their regional network inflicted on themselves in the past. The airline had left this profitable market from Kenya and the Southern Sudan to other airlines, which were happily flying between the two destinations, while KQ stood by citing obscure concerns they would not specifically comment on.

Jetlink, a privately-owned Kenyan airline, in fact, flies their CRJ twice a day to Juba, and a number of other operators also fly daily or several times a week.

It appears that common sense at last prevailed among the decision makers at Kenya Airways to add the route to their regional network, finally offering visitors to the Southern Sudan from overseas a seamless connection on their preferred airline alliance.
