On Thursday, KQ started selling tickets for the inaugural and later flights between Nairobi and NY price-tagged $869 (Sh87 000) for the early worms but said the prices would increase depending on demand. "We are honored to contribute to the economic growth of Kenya and East Africa", Mikosz said.

A return flight will then leave NY at 12.25 pm the same day and touch the ground in Nairobi at 10.55 am the following day.

Kenya Airways introduces historic daily flights to the US.

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. The 15-hour flight will operate onboard a B787 Dreamliner, with 234 seats. From New-York it will depart at 12:25 landing at JKIA at 10:55 the following day. Though the flight will take upwards of 15 hours, in some cases, it will afford passengers much more time at their origin and/or destination.

MINI has also integrated a storage compartment in the centre armrest console for wireless charging of phones. The interior got a new steering wheel along with new materials and optional features.

The airline and JKIA are however yet to receive all necessary approvals by the United States security and transport authorities, including JKIA being designated as a last point of departure while the airline is yet to receive an air operator certification.

"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", the statement announcing the launch of the ticket sales reads. Indications of the direct flights could be allowed came to light in February a year ago when Kenya was granted Category One status after officials from the US Federal Aviation Administration gave approval for non-stop direct flights between the two countries. Kenya Tourism Board (KTB) chief executive officer, Dr Betty Radier, welcomed the development saying anticipation is high the number of tourists visiting Kenya from the U.S. will grow.

The direct flight to the USA from Kenya is not the cheapest but the most convenient alternative to travel to the leading Western hub.

The airline already serves Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and cities in Asia. The route, which is set to commence on October 28, would be the airline's first to the U.S.
