Air France-KLM has just announced the grand opening of its spanking new Africa headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya. Why Nairobi, you ask? Well, they want to supercharge their network and provide top-notch services to the region. Smart move, I say!
Now, this swanky new hub covers seven incredible markets: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Djibouti, South Africa, Nigeria, and Ghana. Talk about spreading their wings far and wide! It’s like they’re saying, “Africa, we’re here to stay!”
Zoran Jelkic, the Senior Vice President of Long-Haul at Air France-KLM, spilled the beans on this genius idea. According to him, gathering the strength of all these countries under one roof in Nairobi was a stroke of brilliance. They’re creating a center of excellence where they align their policies and processes for this region and support the local teams. Efficiency at its finest, my friends!
This cool new office, located in Merchant Square on Riverside Drive, will serve not only East and Southern Africa but also Nigeria and Ghana. They’ve put a rockstar named Mr. Marius van der Ham in charge as the Group’s General Manager. Talk about a big responsibility!
Marius van der Ham himself is pretty stoked about the whole deal. He sees it as a clear sign of Air France-KLM’s unwavering dedication to the region and their commitment to serving their valued customers. Kenya, in particular, caught their attention as the business hub of East Africa. The stable business environment, excellent connectivity, and amazing talent pool made it the perfect choice for their grand plans. Nairobi, you’re in the spotlight now!
Now, here’s the juicy part. This new office isn’t just a fancy building. It’s all about providing a top-notch experience to customers. They’ve got a wide range of services on offer, from ticketing to sales and customer support. If you’ve ever had questions about their products and services, like the Flying Blue loyalty program or their partnerships with other airlines, they’ve got you covered. Knowledge is power, my friends!
This move isn’t just about setting up shop. Air France-KLM wants to meet the growing demand for air travel in the region head-on. They’re already operating flights to various destinations in East Africa, like Nairobi and Dar es Salaam. But now, they’re cranking up the frequency and opening up new routes.
And guess what? Nairobi isn’t just any old stopover. It’s the gateway to the world! Thanks to Air France-KLM’s two hubs in Paris Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, they’re connecting the region to global opportunities. It’s like having a magic carpet that can take you anywhere you want. Talk about choice and flexibility!
