Kenya Airways is the flag carrier of Kenya and it is well known internationally for providing a high quality travel experience. The 787 has become their flagship aircraft with the capability of flying to numerous international destinations. This program takes the viewers on a fantastic journey from Nairobi to destinations such as Kinshasa, Bangkok and Hong Kong onboard the 787-8 and it contains numerous highlights for all to enjoy. Our first round trip from Nairobi to Kinshasa features an all-female flight crew who takes us through each step of flight preparations. These presentations include flight dispatch review, exterior walkaround, cockpit preparation and much more. For the benefit of female viewers, you will also find special interest in the pilot presentations from both the Captain and First Officer who share their career history.

In addition to the educational aspect of this program, it also provides a wealth of scenic views from the cockpit and wing view of the 787.
