Etihad will operate daily flights to Nairobi using modern Airbus A320 aircraft, featuring both Business and Economy cabins along with the airline’s renowned service.

Antonoaldo Neves, Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Airways, stated, “We are thrilled to be re-starting flights to Nairobi, a dynamic and exciting city in itself and also the gateway to a Kenyan safari, a dream adventure for many travellers, offering a view of the diverse and magnificent wildlife of Africa.”

Nairobi boasts a vibrant cultural scene and serves as a hub for modern African music. It’s also a gateway to Kenya’s renowned safari destinations, including the iconic Masai Mara National Reserve, where visitors can spot the ‘big five’ – African elephants, rhinoceros, Cape buffalo, leopards, and lions.
