KQ, Viet­nam Airlines re­new code­share agree­ment

The Star (Kenya) - - News Business -

Kenya Air­ways has re­newed and ex­panded its code­share agree­ment with Viet­nam Airlines as it seeks to meet the de­mand on the Asia’s route. The na­tional car­rier yes­ter­day said the new agree­ment will al­low it more ac­cess to South East Asia des­ti­na­tions, which took ef­fect this Novem­ber. The code­share cov­ers the Bangkok-Hanoi and Saigon, Nairobi–Hanoi, and Hanoi-Kuala Lumpur routes. “The ex­pan­sion of our code­share with Viet­nam Airlines is in line with our on­go­ing ef­forts to ex­pand our net­work, and to of­fer our cus­tomers re­li­able, con­ve­nient and more travel op­tions,” Kenya Air­ways CEO Mbuvi Ngunze said. KQ has had a code­share agree­ment with Viet­nam Airlines since Au­gust 1, 2012, and started to fly to Hanoi in March last year. The ex­panded code­share with Viet­nam Airlines comes in the back of Kenya Air­way’s sign­ing a code­share with In­dia’s in­ter­na­tional air­line, Jet Air­ways, to code­share on do­mes­tic flights in or­der to en­hance con­nec­tiv­ity for pas­sen­gers trav­el­ling from Kenya to do­mes­tic des­ti­na­tions in In­dia.
