Kenya Airways Expands Codeshare With China Southern
Kenya Airways has expanded the scope of its code share agreement with fellow Sky Team member, China Southern Airlines, as it works towards deepening its global presence.
The initial agreement was signed in 2009 and provided a framework for partnership between Kenya Airways and China Southern Airlines that saw them market and sell one another’s flights as if they were their own on the Nairobi- Dubai -Guangzhou route.
Under the expanded agreement, Kenya Airways will code share on China Southern Airlines services from Bangkok to Wuhan, one of the busiest cities in Central China that is an important center for trade, finance and transportation.
As part of the expanded scope, Kenya Airways passengers will also get seamless access to Sydney, Melbourne and Perth through China Southern Airlines flights from Guangzhou China, providing another valuable benefit to its customers.
In return, China Southern Airlines will code share on Kenya Airways flights from Guangzhou to Nairobi, and onwards to Lagos, Johannesburg and Lusaka.
The new code share services between China Southern Airlines and Kenya Airways goes on sale on July 18, for travel from August 1, 2013.
