British Airways will resume its direct daily service between London and Nairobi in Kenya from July 2.
The move follows the removal of the UK government’s restriction preventing all British carriers from operating air services between the UK and Nairobi since May 15. It also takes into account the airline`s careful monitoring of the situation.
Ron Lindsay, British Airways’ head of aviation security said: “The safety and security of our staff, our customers and our operation is always our absolute priority and will not be compromised. We would not fly to any destination unless we were satisfied totally it was safe to do so.
“The airline’s own team of security experts remains in close contact with the UK’s Department for Transport and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and continues to keep the situation under close review.”
In addition to British Airways mainline services resuming, the franchise agreement between British Airways and Regional Air will continue. The Kenyan based airline will once again operate services from Nairobi to other points in Africa on behalf of British Airways.
