NAIROBI, Kenya (1990)

The Nairobi base operated with local cabin crews from Kenya until 1990 with their Airbus A-310 flights to Frankfurt, Germany, where PAN AM had its main European technical hub and where short and long haul  flights continued to many other destinations. The Nairobi based crews took the airbus over from the IGS Berlin based crews when they arrived at Frankfurt.
