Kenya Airways will move its operations in Paris’ Charles De Gaulle (CDG) Airport to Terminal 2E from the current Terminal 2C where it operates, the national carrier has said.
The airline’s management says the decision is aimed at giving better services to its customers traveling to and from the French capital.
The move starting from October 29, 2017 will see passengers’ access state of the art passenger lounges, seamless connections throughout Europe and Americas and great shopping outlets.
Terminal 2E is also home to Kenya Airways’ Skyteam partner Air France.
This means any passengers transiting across Europe and connecting Trans-Atlantic flights from the USA, Canada and South America using KQ’s partner airlines will not need to change terminals, enhancing connectivity.
“This is part of our continuous improvement of customer service. Passengers traveling through Paris will enjoy a more convenient and spacious environment, with easier connections to and from other major European and Trans-Atlantic cities, as well as the many services available to our Skyteam partners,” said Vincent Coste, Kenya Airways Commercial Director.
The national carrier has been aligning its operations in the last one year after a series of loses.
Last year, KQ sold off its prime landing slot at London’s Heathrow airport for an estimated Sh7.5 billion.
