Africa becomes an important travel destination, and demand to the African destinations is on the rise. Today, Lufthansa announced its non-stop flights to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. Lufthansa expects great interest and high demand especially among leisure travellers. On the African continent, Lufthansa passengers will be able to experience an extremely lively metropolis.
From 27 October, Lufthansa will fly between Frankfurt and Nairobi four times a week in winter 2015/16 and five times a week from 11 December with an Airbus A340-300. LH 590 will leave Lufthansa's Frankfurt hub every morning on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday (and on Friday from 11 December 2015 to the end of January 2016) and will reach Nairobi in the evening after a journey of more than eight hours. The return aircraft will take off from Nairobi as a night flight in the late evening and lands the morning of the following day at Frankfurt Airport. The flight times are thus optimally aligned to flights from Germany, Europe and the North Atlantic.
The Kenyan capital has numerous attractions. Guests can discover, for example, African history at the National Museum. In the city centre of Nairobi, you can experience the culinary side of Kenya in the markets and in restaurants. Or, just a few kilometres from the centre of the city with 2.7 million inhabitants, you can observe the wild African animals in Nairobi National Park.
The round trip to Nairobi can be booked from 649 euros. More information and the opportunity to book Lufthansa flights can be found online at LH.com or via the Lufthansa Service Center by calling (069) 86 799 799 (landline rate). Flights can also be booked at the Lufthansa travel agency partners and at the Lufthansa sales counters at airports.
