Kenya Airways Increases Flights to Ethiopia as Workers Flee Tigray

Kenya Airways has increased scheduled flights to Ethiopia from three to seven a week as the high demand for passengers seeking air travel in the wake of political upheaval has gone up.

The carrier has been operating three flights on the route every week but it has added four more frequencies to cater for high demand as countries repatriate their citizens from Addis Ababa.

The conflict in Ethiopia escalated this month after rebellious forces from the northern region of Tigray and their allies made territorial gains and threatened to march on the capital.

“We have increased flights because of high demand as the countries ease travel restrictions,” said KQ in response to Business Daily queries.

The airline is offering a 15 per cent discount to passengers who will make bookings between November 10-17 as an incentive to attract travellers on a route dominated by Ethiopian Airlines.

The national carrier has also increased flights to other routes including Dar es Salaam from 14 to 16, Entebbe from 14 to 16 and Kinshasa from five to eight.
