Kenya Airways is eyeing New York in its debut direct flight to United States.

New York’s JFK Airport was the United State’s fourth-busiest airport in 2016, according to Airports Council International.

The national  carrier is expected to start flying directly in the next three months.

The airline, which last week received regulatory approval to operate direct flights to the US, also estimates that it will move 60,000 passengers in its first year of operation on the route.

“We are currently focusing on New York due to the importance of point to point traffic with Nairobi. However, we are also studying other options on the US territory as we may expand our network in the US in the near future,” Kenya Airways (KQ) Commercial Director Vincent Coste told a local daily.

KQ received a foreign air carrier permit on September 5th from the United States Department of Transportation (DOT).

KQ sees New York as a convenient East Coast aviation hub to mark its entry into the US, before spreading its wings across the world’s biggest economy.
