To celebrate Kenya Airways’ success at the World Travel Awards 2022 this weekend, we’re taking you through a business class experience with the ‘Pride of Africa’ airline. Discover business class in great detail direct from London Heathrow to Nairobi. Plus, explore the cosmopolitan city with our quick business travel guide.

This October, the prestigious World Travel Awards 2022 honored Kenya Airways with four prestigious titles, including:

  • Leading Airline in Africa 2022

Kenya Airways is the country’s flag carrier and is also a member of the global Skyteam alliance. The company was founded in 1977 as a result of the dissolution of East African Airways. Headquarters are located in Embakasi, Nairobi, with the hub at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The airline offers trips to 53 destinations in 41 countries.

Fly to Nairobi Business Class with Kenya Airways

Kenya Airways operates up to two daily direct flights from London Heathrow to Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The flight lasts approximately eight hours on one of the airline’s fleet of Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners.

Business Class is divided into a larger forward cabin with three rows in front and a smaller, quieter two-row cabin behind the galley. A 2-2-2 configuration completes the light and airy cabin. Each seat transforms into a flat bed with plush blankets and pillows to ensure a smooth ride. Easy-access controls convert the seat back to an upright position. Storage space is behind and to the side of the seats, as well as under the footrest.

Remote-controlled screens displaying hundreds of movies and TV shows, plus maps and airline marketing round out the inflight entertainment. The flight attendants prepare elegantly presented menus that include a variety of wines and appetizing cuisine and would have personally welcomed you by name.

At Heathrow, use the Skypriority service, which includes priority check-in, security, boarding and bag drop. Skyteam lounge in T4 is now closed; however, Skyteam Elite Plus, First and Business Class customers are invited to use selected alternative lounges at Heathrow before they fly. This includes passengers flying business class with Kenya Airways.

Both Nairobi with its nickname ‘Silicon Savannah’ and Mombasa with its thriving port play a vital role in the growth of the country. Kenya’s most important exports are tea, coffee, grains and fruits. Nairobi itself is a hub of huge growth in the finance and technology sectors, dubbed Africa’s answer to ‘Silicon Valley’.
