A statement from the airline said this would be the national carrier's 52nd destination and its second city in Zimbabwe after Harare where it operates 21 flights weekly.

"This new route highlights our strategy to continue 'Winning in Africa' which is driven by opening up the region and ensuring our value proposition meets the demands for our customers," said Kenya Airways' MD Mbuvi Ngunze.

Ngunze said the new route between Nairobi and Victoria Falls will operate three times a week on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

The Victoria Falls operation will be linked to Cape Town, South Africa. This will see the airline increase its operations to Cape Town from the current four, which are served via Livingstone, Zambia, to six.
