Kenya Airways, leading African airline has recently unveiled the non-stop direct flight from Nairobi to NY.

Direct flights to the USA will significantly reduce the time taken to move cargo between the United States and East Africa; from seven days to as little as a day.

"The move will cut the flight time between the two cities by more than seven hours", he said, noting it will take 15 hours eastbound and 14 hours westbound.

The return flight will depart at 12:25 p.m. and arrive back in Kenya at 10:55 a.m. the day after.

With more than 40 American multinationals located in Nairobi and many more across Africa, the launch of daily flights is expected to further spur trade between America and Africa. The airline says it hopes the new route to the United States will stimulate trade between the two nations.

KQ chief executive Sebastian Mikosz, however, said both KQ and JKIA had received the critical approvals and added that the remaining requirements would be met as the airline sets up the route.
