Kenya Airways will from Tuesday, June 2, 2015 resume direct flights between Accra and Freetown, Sierra Leone.
The resumption of flights is after the Sierra Leone Civil Aviation Authority gave the airline the go ahead to operate the flights.
Kenya Airways stopped operating on the route following a suspension by the Ministry of Health initiated in August 2014 following the outbreak of Ebola. The ministry lifted the ban in May 2015.
Group CEO and Managing Director Mbuvi Ngunze said; “The airline in consultation with the Governments of Kenya and Sierra Leone has constantly assessed the situation and is pleased with the latest development.”
Kenya Airways will operate daily flights on the route.
The move comes two weeks after the airline resumed direct flights from Nairobi to Monrovia, Liberia.
