The new non-stop flights from the United States to Kenya means you can be on safari in Masai Mara, one of the best-known reserves in Africa by tomorrow.

The long wait for Kenya Airways’ (KQ) direct flight from the United States (US) is over. From October 28, 2018, you can fly directly to Nairobi from New York aboard Kenya’s national carrier KQ. Kenya Airways operates a daily nonstop trans- Atlantic flight scheduled to depart from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi daily on a 15-hour journey that has eliminated lengthy layovers and reduced the flight duration by 7 hours.

KQ’s daily schedule allows you to depart from Nairobi at 23h25, arriving in New York the following day at 06h25 while the flight from New York departs at 12h00, arriving in Nairobi the following day at 10h30 leaving an ample time for you to reach Masai Mara by road or air.

Travelers on board the direct flight from New York have a chance to hop on an afternoon flight from Nairobi to Masai Mara, where they shall experience a game drive 45 minutes later. We are thrilled to make your safari seamless and memorable.

This route will be serviced by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner carrying 234 passengers in a two-class configuration opening Kenya’s market to more visitors from the US. Kenya has seen a steady growth in visitors from the US, making it the second largest source of overseas visitors after the UK.
