Code-share agree­ment

The Star Early Edition - - BUSINESS REPORT / INTERNATIONAL -

KENYA Air­ways said yes­ter­day that it has signed a code-share agree­ment with Egyp­tAir, on the Nairobi-Cairo route, in a bid to im­prove con­nec­tiv­ity to Egypt in north­ern Africa. Kenya Air­ways group chief ex­ec­u­tive Se­bas­tian Mikosz said the agree­ment will see Egyp­tAir load Kenya Air­ways flight code on the Egyp­tian car­ri­ers’ four flights be­tween Cairo and Nairobi from June 1. This will al­low the na­tional car­rier to re­sume di­rect mar­ket ac­cess be­tween Nairobi and Cairo since its own op­er­a­tions were sus­pended in Au­gust 2013. “As African air­lines, part­ner­ships are our big­gest op­por­tu­nity as we seek to sus­tain­ably de­velop Africa. This is in­deed in line with the core pur­pose of Kenya Air­ways,” he said. – Xin­hua
