Kenya Airways has discontinued flights to Hong Kong, China and Hanoi, Vietnam starting October 29 in route optimization strategy.

The airline has said it will continue to serve Hong Kong and Hanoi through its partners.

“This network decision will help Kenya Airways to strengthen its focus on Africa. We will continue to serve our customers to Asia through our direct flights to China and Thailand and work closely with our partners to cover the Asian continent,” said Kenya Airways Commercial Director, Vincent Coste.

This move will allow the national carrier to operate with a better schedule to Asia with a daily flight to Bangkok and Guangzhou.
The network change will also allow KQ to allocate more seats across its African network where demand outlook remains strong and capacity insufficient on certain routes.
