Kenya Airways inks code share deal with China Eastern Airlines


08:28, December 11, 2012

NAIROBI, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) -- Kenya Airways on Monday announced its expansion into China through code share agreement signed with China Eastern Airlines, a partnership that will boost the national carrier's expansion into the Far East.

The agreement provides a framework for China Eastern Airlines to market and sell Kenya Airways' flights from Shanghai and vice versa for Kenya Airways.

"Kenya Airways seeks to strengthen its presence in China by offering better connection options to its passengers from Africa and our association with China Eastern Airlines gives us an opportunity to offer our customers a seamless connection to and from China," Kenya Airways CEO Dr. Titus Naikuni said in a statement issued in Nairobi.

Under the agreement between Kenya Airways and China Eastern Airlines, KQ will code share on daily services between Bangkok and Shanghai, while China Eastern Airlines will code share on daily Kenya Airways service between Bangkok and Nairobi.

The East African nation's carrier announced early this year that it will increase its destinations to China from the current two to six as it seeks to tap into the growing passenger and cargo travel between China and Africa.
