Kenya Airways inks code share deal with China Eastern Airlines (2)


08:28, December 11, 2012

Kenya Airways currently flies directly from Nairobi to Hong Kong and Guangzhou.

"Our plan is to increase these destinations to six and then increase the frequencies of the two routes because the passenger demand is adequate," Titus Naikuni, the CEO of Kenya Airways, told Xinhua in April.

Naikuni said passenger and cargo business between Africa and China is one of the factors that will drive the growth of the airline.

"There is the obvious big shift as engagement between Africa and the East, rather than the west is growing faster. We are positioning ourselves to take advantage of the emerging travel needs," he said.

The code share agreement with China Eastern Airlines is expected to open up the Shanghai market through Kenya Airways' Bangkok operations.

Besides giving passengers a wider choice of options for travel, the code share agreements also provide an opportunity for the airline to expand its global operations without necessarily flying its equipment to all the destinations.
