Kenya Airways and Air Mauritius have signed an MOU to extend their collaboration in a bid to offer their customers more possibilities for connections at their hubs in Nairobi and Mauritius.
The agreement was signed by the CEOs of both airlines and witnessed by Mike Seetaramadoo, EVP Commercial & Resource Optimization at Air Mauritius and Vincent Coste, Kenya Airways CCO.
The two airlines already have a longstanding code-share agreement under which Kenya Airways places its code on the 3 weekly flights operated by Air Mauritius on the Mauritius-Nairobi route.
Air Mauritius uses Nairobi as a hub from where it offers connections to a number of destinations in Eastern and Central Africa through KQ network. Kenya Airways also uses Mauritius as a platform to connect on the Air Mauritius network.
Kenya Airways, a member of the Sky Team Alliance, is a leading African airline flying to 53 destinations worldwide, 42 of which are in Africa and carries over three million passengers annually.
Air Mauritius is the flag carrier airline of Mauritius. From its main hub at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport Plaine Magnien, it flies to 24 destinations.
