Kenya Airways and Oman Air Begin Codeshare Implementation
Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman and Kenya Airways have signed a codeshare agreement, the implementation of which came into effect from August 28, 2017.
The new partnership will allow Kenya Airways passengers to seamlessly connect Muscat directly from Nairobi on Oman Air services.
Under the codeshare deal, Kenya Airways will place its KQ flight numbers on the Oman Air flights between Nairobi and Muscat.
Through the 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.
Oman Air had on March 28, 2017, launched a new four weekly service between Muscat and the Kenyan capital of Nairobi using a Boeing 737-800NG.
Trade between Kenya and Oman has been growing steadily over the years and the new codeshare service will facilitate the increase in bilateral trade and investment opportunities in both countries.
Oman Air is the national carrier of Oman. From its hub at the Muscat International Airport in Seeb, Muscat, it operates flight services to 50 domestic and international destinations.
