Oman Air and Kenya Airways expand the scope of their codeshare agreement

Posted 1 October 2019 · Add Comment

Kenya Airways and Oman Air have expanded their existing codeshare cooperation increasing the destinations available to their guests. Oman Air (WY) and Kenya Airways (KQ) commenced their codeshare agreement covering services between Muscat and Nairobi in August 2017.

 

The codeshare expansion effective today October 1, 2019, will allow seamless connectivity to Oman Air guests traveling beyond Nairobi to Entebbe (Uganda) and Johannesburg (South Africa). Similarly, Kenya Airways guests can now extend their travel beyond Muscat (Oman) to Karachi (Pakistan) and Lahore (Pakistan).

Kenya Airways chief commercial officer Ursula Silling said: “We are pleased to enhance our cooperation with Oman Air. Through this partnership, Kenya Airways extends its services to tourists as well as to those who are visiting friends and families, in Oman - through the cultural links that Oman shares with the coastal parts of East Africa - especially Kenya and Tanzania.

 “This cooperation also expands our footprint in the Middle East through the Muscat gateway and is consistent with Kenya Airways’ strategy to improve its network efficiency, grow through partners while focusing on the high yield corporate and leisure segments.” She added.

The following destinations will be added subject to government and regulatory approvals for Oman Air guests traveling beyond Nairobi to Dar Es Salam (Tanzania) and for Kenya Airways guests beyond Muscat (Oman) to Bangalore (India), Chennai (India), New Delhi (India), Hyderabad (India) and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia).

Abdulaziz Al Raisi, chief executive officer of Oman Air said: “We are very happy with the extension of this codeshare which offers our guests an opportunity to travel beyond Nairobi and Muscat.   Through this partnership, Oman Air extends its exemplary services to the guests of Kenya Airways. We have been successfully promoting Kenya throughout our network of destinations. This codeshare extension is a result of the steady growth of visitors between the two countries facilitated through our operations that connect our network with Nairobi. With Oman Air’s easy connections to Europe, Indian Sub-Continent and GCC, we are sure this extended codeshare will open up further new opportunities for us.”
