Kenya Airways flights to the Kenya's fast-growing town, Eldoret, are scheduled to begin on 17 October, 2012, with 10 flights a week into the Rift Valley Province town.
Eldoret, taken from the Masai word eldore meaning "stony river" due to its proximity to the Sosiani River, is currently the fifth-largest town in Kenya. The popular town houses one of Kenya's seven public universities, Moi University, as well as its own international airport. The Trans-African Highway forms a 10.269km east-west crossing of the African continent, with this frequented transit road network also passing through Eldoret.
