He said the flights will see Kenya Airways employ more pilots and more crew to facilitate the functionality of the new flight route launched.
Henk Graaff, managing director of destination management company SW Africa, said the new flight is fantastic news for Kenya as well as for the entire East African region and the continent.
Kenya Airways Chairman Michael Joseph said that the flights will symbolize the comeback for the airline that has been making losses for the past few years.
The airline will operate its state of the art Boeing 787 Dreamliner with a capacity of 234 passengers.
The airline will be conducting a daily flight between Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport. From New-York it will depart at 1225 and land at JKIA at 1055 the following day. Its duration will be 15 hours eastbound and 14 hours westbound. What was pending was approval of the Air Service Licence and Air Operation Licence from the USA authorities which has been granted.
With over 40 American multinationals located in Nairobi and many more across Africa, the launch of daily flights is expected to further spur trade between America and Africa.
Kenya has in the past year been in the process of acquiring the requisite approvals from the US Transport Security Administration for the direct flights and the national carrier admits it will be a logistic intensive exercise. It is the largest tourist source market, and in the period to October 2017 accounted for close to 100 000 tourists to Kenya.
The flight will connect Nairobi, Kenya's capital city and one of Africa's busiest and business-heavy cities, to one of the world's premier business hubs, New York City, which has not been possible until recently.
It is anticipated that the new form of easier travel to the United States will directly impact Kenya's economy through direct and indirect employment, as well as boosting trade between the two nations.
