Kenya Airways resumes passenger service to Bangkok

National carrier Kenya Airways (KQ) has announced the resumption of flights to Bangkok starting this month, operating the route five times per week.

The route was launched in 2003 and suspended in 2020 due to the global Covid-19 pandemic.

The resumption of flights to Bangkok will expand KQ’s current network to 42 destinations, offering travellers into and out of Africa, convenient connections via Nairobi to the popular Thai destination.

The flights between Nairobi and Bangkok will be operated with the modern Boeing 787-8 aircraft connecting Africa to the world and the world to Africa via Nairobi.

Julius Thairu, Kenya Airways Chief Commercial and Customer Officer said, “Today marks a moment of pride and readiness as we reintroduce our flights to Bangkok, Thailand.

“This initiative underscores our proactive approach in expanding international routes, urging our passengers to embrace new and enriching travel experiences.

“Beyond its status as Thailand’s capital and most populous city, boasting a population of over 10 million, Bangkok is a vibrant hub offering a wide range of tourist, art, and cultural attractions for our esteemed customers.”
