Virgin Atlantic Stops Flights to Kenya

Due to a drop in passenger numbers and the constantly rising fuel costs, Virgin Atlantic is going to cut all flights to Kenya starting in September, a service they have been operating for the past five years.  The airline has assured all passengers who have tickets booked for travel in September and beyond will be able to get a full refund or switch their flight to another airline.  Flights from London to Nairobi will stop on September 23, with the last return flight happening on the following day.

Sir Richard Branson, president of Virgin Atlantic, said that it has become uneconomical to fly to Nairobi due to rising fuel costs, government fees, and poor time slots.  He also said that there is a great need to increase capacity at Heathrow and that the government has to be more realistic about the aviation taxes they impose on airlines.  Other airlines that offer service to Kenya include British Airways, Emirates, KLM, and Air France.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
