According to the press communique, amongst Livingston Compagnia Aerea's destinations to be launched, are flights to "Kenya, Zanzibar (Tanzania) and Mauritius" though no origins or specific dates are mentioned.
"During the event, Livingston’s Sole Administrator Riccardo Toto and the carrier’s Sales Director Giorgio Valenti spoke to journalists. Flights operated with 306-passenger Airbus A330 (18 First Class seats, 18 Comfort Class seats, 270 Basic Class seats). Long-haul destinations: Kenya, Zanzibar, Mauritius and the Caribbean."

If Livingston Energy Flight's former network is anything to go by, "Kenya" will most likely translate into Mombasa. If so, it will prove to be a huge shot in the arm following the recent mass exodus of carriers from the port city.
