Togo: ASKY inaugurates its first Lomé-Nairobi flight

The pan-African airline ASKY Airlines made its inaugural Lomé-Nairobi flight on Saturday September 30, 2023, in the presence of the airline’s top executives and Togolese authorities. This flight follows the carrier’s announcement of the opening of this route last August.

Following this flight, the Lomé-based airline will now connect Togo with Kenya via 3 weekly flights on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays. The airline will use its fleet of 15 aircraft, including two 737 MAXs.

The opening of this new route, according to the Togolese Ministry of Transport, contributes to the realization of the government’s ambition to connect Togo to the rest of the world and to make the country a hub for services and logistics in West Africa.

Forthcoming flights to Nairobi via Lomé should also boost passenger traffic at the Gnassingbé Eyadéma International Airport (AIGE), which has set itself the target of reaching 1.5 million passengers by 2025. With this in mind, a number of initiatives are being undertaken by the country’s authorities, including the development of the old terminal building into an additional transit zone, the construction of new parking lots and the planned development of the airport hotel.

With the vision of connecting Africa to all regions of the world from Lomé, ASKY now serves 29 destinations in 27 countries.
