Kenya Airways has signed a new agreement that will expand connectivity between Asia and Africa.
The codeshare partnership with Hong Kong Airlines enables passengers to book single-ticket travel between Nairobi, Bangkok and Hong Kong, using a combination of the two carriers.
Kenya Airways flies daily between the Kenyan and Thai capitals, and will now place its “KQ” code on Hong Kong Airlines’ regular flights between Bangkok and Hong Kong.
“This partnership will enable us and Hong Kong Airlines to offer our customers seamless connection, especially for our passengers in the region who mainly travel to these Asian cities for business. Our guests will now be able to enjoy daily flights between Hong Kong and Nairobi up from the current three weekly flights,” said Kenya Airways’ group managing director & CEO, Mbuvi Ngunze.
Hong Kong Airlines launched the Hong Kong-Bangkok in 2010 now operates 34 weekly flights between the two Asian metropolises.
“The codeshare enables passengers of Kenya Airways to choose from our flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok connecting their journey to and from Nairobi with much flexibility,” said Hong Kong Airlines’ chief commercial officer, Li Dianchun.
