Kenya Airways has commenced flights from Nairobi to Jeddah, the third Middle East destination for the airline.

Kenya Airways will operate the route twice a week, every Tuesday and Saturday on an Embraer 90 with a 12/86 seating capacity across two cabins, said a statement.

Abraham Joseph, area manager, Middle East, Eastern Europe, Indian Sub-continent and North Africa, Kenya Airways, said: “Jeddah is an important trading partner for several African and European countries and as an airline it is an important destination for us because of its economic importance as well as being the gateway to the Holy City of Makkah.
