Kenya Airways has slashed rates for all Ugandan bound flights from USA to Uganda until next year.
The festive season promotion comes at a 10 percent discount for all passengers that book online, which puts a return ticket from USA to Uganda and Vice Versa at about $900 (Shs 3.4m) if booking is made during the festive season.
The airline has already cut down travel time from East Africa to JFK by over 6 hours following their maiden flight to the US airport on October 29.
Speaking to Nile Post about the promotion, the airlines Sales Manager attached to USA, Jennifer Njuguna said their aim is to ensure diasporans get in touch with their families and friends back home cheaply and quickly.
“As the saying goes ‘charity begins at home’ and for this reason KQ have had a campaign for the E. Africa diaspora communities to experience the flights for cheaper, hence making them true ambassadors,” she said.
“Visiting friends and family has never been this easy. Fly Kenya Airways direct from JFK to East Africa and connect with your loved ones. We are offering a 10 percent discount once you input the code while booking. The Uganda promo code is NYCEBB,” she added.
The airline has been at the backbone of a few Ugandan diaspora activities, being an exhibitor partner at the recently concluded UNAA Causes festival in Washington DC.
