Direct flights to Nairobi!

Direct flights between Kenya and the United States could begin as early as May, according to Kenyan officials.

“We anticipate that we shall commence direct flights to the USA by May 2016, having as of now cleared almost all aviation audit issues,” transport cabinet secretary James Macharia told the Nation, a local newspaper.

I had hoped that this would happen in time to affect my Kenya trip in February, but this is good news for next year. Both Delta and Kenya Airways are planning flights between Nairobi and Atlanta.
