Kenya Airways resumes flights to Madagascar

April 26, 2022

Kenya Airways (KQ) said Monday it has resumed flights to Madagascar following the easing of travel restrictions by Antananarivo.

Julius Thairu, chief commercial and customer officer said the airline will operate the direct flight thrice weekly from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), Nairobi to Ivato International Airport, Antananarivo.

“As part of our tactical approach to growth, we seek to link key markets within the KQ network to allow passengers seamless connectivity from all points with a particular focus in connecting Africa,” Thairu said in a statement issued in the capital, Nairobi.

The non-stop flight will depart from Nairobi every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, re-opening travel opportunities for both Kenyans and residents of the Indian Ocean Island.

Thairu said passengers traveling to Madagascar are advised to follow protocols prescribed by the government for passenger entry including negative PCR test results done 72 hours before the flight; rapid antigen screening test upon arrival; and quarantine for at least seven days for passengers with positive test results at health facilities or hotels approved by the government.
