The acting Kenya High Commissioner to Nigeria, Samuel Mogere as part of the initiative aimed at opening up Kenya to the world, the Kenya Airways will commence daily flights to Nigeria.
The high commissioner stated this in Abuja on Wednesday at the Magical Kenya road show.
He said the present government in Kenya is determined to unite Africa and part of the process is to ensure that Nigerians can travel easily and on a daily basis to Kenya without stress.
He also said the government of Kenya has introduced an online e-visa process where one can apply and get his or her visa approved to travel to Kenya without the rigorous process involved in visa processing before now.
Also speaking at the event, the marketing manager, Kenya Tourism Board, Alex Tunoi said the roadshow was a diversification strategy by the tourism board to increase arrivals from Africa as Africa is the focus of Kenya tourism.
The regional sales manager of Sarova Hotels and Resorts, Kenya Steve Biko said they are in Nigeria because Nigeria is an important market for Kenya with the large population and constant travellers.
Recall that Kenya Airways had announced that direct flights between Nairobi and Abuja would begin on June 6, 2014.
The airline currently flies four times a week between its hub at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.
The direct flights to Abuja were usually on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
