Lufthansa is adding flights to Nairobi, Kenya’s capital from 27 October. An Airbus A340-300 aircraft will fly between Frankfurt and Nairobi four times a week in winter 2015/16 and five times a week from 11 December.
LH 590 will leave Lufthansa’s Frankfurt hub 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. The flight times are thus optimally aligned to flights from Germany, Europe and the North Atlantic.
Lufthansa has revealed it expects great interest and high demand especially among leisure travellers.
