Kenya Airways expands codeshare with India’s Jet Airways

Kenya’s national airline Kenya Airways has taken their cooperation with Jet Airways, India’s premier international airline, to the next level and has announced the two airlines to codeshare on domestic flights in India between Mumbai (BOM) and New Delhi (DEL), Ahmedabad (AMD) and Hyderabad (HYD). This will enhance connectivity choices for guests traveling from Kenya into India with Kenya Airways.

Through this agreement Kenya Airways will have its flight code (KQ) on Jet Airways’ seven daily flights between Mumbai and New Delhi, five daily flights from Mumbai to Ahmedabad and five daily flights between Mumbai and Hyderabad for travel effective today, November 15.

This, together with KQ’s twice-daily flights on the Nairobi – Mumbai route will allow Kenya Airways passengers greater access to these key Indian cities and onwards to other destinations in India.

The arrangement also enables Jet Airways passengers to book codeshare tickets to Nairobi, and access the rest of Kenya Airways network across Africa.

Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Mbuvi Ngunze said the partnership will enable customers of both carriers to get maximum benefit of this cooperation. ‘This partnership will enable us to offer our customers seamless connections to the three cities. We see a lot of demand into domestic India from Kenya and East Africa, with passengers travelling mostly for business, leisure or health tourism’ said Mr Mbuvi.

Mr. Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways then responded and said: ‘With a domestic network of 46 destinations, Jet Airways connects the world into India seamlessly. Expansion of our codeshare relationship with Kenya Airways will allow us to offer the India diaspora in Kenya convenient access to more destinations in India. At the same time, Indian travelers can continue enjoying the opportunity to explore more of Kenya and East Africa via our international codeshares, strengthening the relationship between the people of the two nations’.
