KQ announces capacity reduction on Mumbai route


Kenya Airways has confirmed that effective immediately 3 out of the presently 10 flights between Nairobi and Mumbai will be operated on B737-700 aircraft, leaving the remaining frequencies to be flown on a B767-300ER.

This reflects according to a regular source close to the airline the present demand and allows for the larger B767 used until now to be redeployed on routes where greater capacity is required. The B737-700 is capable to fly nonstop between Nairobi and Mumbai.

The airline has also confirmed that from April onwards will the B767-300ER be substituted for a larger and more comfortable B777-200ER as the traditional travel season between the two countries of Kenya and India gathers pace again.
