Kenya hopes to start direct commercial flights to the United States by May after it met most of the requirements set by an international aviation authority, Transport minister James Macharia on Wednesday.

The country wants to boost exports to Washington and increase visits by American tourists, with direct flights being a part of a package of deals announced during US President Barack Obama's visit in July.
"We shall get direct flights to the US by May this year," Mr Macharia said.
Mr Macharia said several airlines were keen to offer direct flights between Kenya and the United States. Delta Airlines previously set a launch date for flights but cancelled due to security concerns. Kenya Airways also plans to offer direct flights.
Jomo Kenyatta International Airport scored 88 per cent when it was assessed by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) last September, the minister said, disclosing the score for the first time.
Inspectors from the US Federal Aviation Administration are expected to complete their audit of the airport before the end of March, he said.
