Kenya Airways has announced a discount on flight tickets for Kenyans living in the United States.
The airline says Kenyans who fly on its newly launched direct flights between New York and Nairobi will enjoy a 10 percent discount on tickets and luggage fees.
Kenya Airways hopes this move will lure the more than 100,000 Kenyans living in the US to sign up for its new service launched three weeks ago.
“The special rate for the Kenyan diaspora is only available for bookings made directly on our website,” KQ’s area manager for the Americas, Stephen Ngamau says in a notice pinned at the Kenyan Embassy in Washington DC.
“We encourage guests to enroll onto our database for more updates and offers… We look forward to having the Kenyan diaspora aboard Kenya Airways soon.”
Ticket prices on the Nairobi-New York route will sell at between $790 and $1,050 depending on the booking period.
