The move is Kenya Airways has signed a codeshare agreement with EgyptAir (MS), on the Nairobi-Cairo route, as part of the push to improve connectivity and access in Northern Africa.

The agreement will see EgyptAir load Kenya Airways flight code on the Egyptian carriers’ four flights between Cairo and Nairobi from June 1st, 2017. This will allow the national carrier resume direct market access between Nairobi and Cairo since August 2013 when its own operations were suspended. The codeshare partnership will initially cover 6 routes enhancing passengers travel opportunities throughout the region. These will include Cairo, Istanbul, Mombasa, Dar es Salaam, Lusaka and Harare.

Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz said the partnership will enable customers of both carriers to enjoy the benefits of each other’s network.

“This partnership enhances bilateral trade as well as enabling both carriers to offer customers seamless connectivity between Kenya and Egypt, especially for our passengers in the region who mainly travel for business and leisure. Our guests will now be able to enjoy flights to Cairo either directly from Nairobi or through Entebbe or Khartoum,” said Mikosz.

“EgyptAir has initiated the partnership with Kenya Airways as a foundation for future commercial operational opportunities between both airlines,” said Chairman and CEO EGYPTAIR Holding, Mr. Safwat Musallam.
