The largest airline in Europe, German airline Lufthansa, is set to introduce flights to Nairobi in Kenya on 27 Oct 2015. The airline will operate flights between Frankfurt Airport (FRA) in Frankfurt and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Kenya's capital four times a week in winter 2015/16 and five times a week from 11 December 2015 on board an Airbus A340-300.
Lufthansa's flights will leave Frankfurt every morning on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday (and on Friday from 11 December 2015 to the end of January 2016) and will reach Nairobi in the evening after a journey of more than eight hours. The return aircraft will take off from Nairobi as a night flight in the late evening and lands the morning of the following day at Frankfurt Airport (FRA). The flight times are thus optimally aligned to flights from Germany, Europe and the North Atlantic.
