Nairobi, June 2, 2014…Kenya Airways has today commenced flights to Amsterdam on its second Boeing 777-300ER.
This is the maiden commercial flight by the Boeing 777-300ER, which the airline received on May 5, 2014. The modern aircraft is targeted at giving customers a greater sense of comfort with best quality in service delivery.
“Amsterdam is one of our key and oldest routes. We have flown there over the last 26 years. The introduction of the 400 passenger capacity plane will help meet rising demand on the route,” said Dr Titus Naikuni, Kenya Airways’ Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer.
Dr Naikuni added that the modern aircraft would help the airline strengthen its long haul capability, paving way for the introduction of new continental routes while delivering a world class experience to guests.
Among the exciting features in the Boeing 777-300ER aircraft’s Premier World section are: full flatbed seats with leather foot-rests, laptop stowage and armrests that also act as privacy dividers, Wi-Fi connectivity for passengers, high quality in-flight entertainment; a 15.4 inch touch screen monitor for each seat, power sockets and USB ports.
For the Economy Class, seats are also a cut above the rest, with articulating seat bottoms for better legroom, four-way adjustable headrests, in-flight handset seatback and large 10.6 inch touch screen monitors. Each seat also has a USB port, with power sockets strategically installed throughout the cabin.
