There is a very good news for passengers. Kenya Airways has reached an agreement with Delta Airlines to activate its codeshare in the United States of America and Canada.
The codeshare arrangement will enable travellers enjoy greater connectivity to other cities within the US and Canada at more competitive fares. Travellers can connect from New York, using the direct flight from Nairobi to 11 US cities and 4 Canadian cities.
Destinations covered in the codeshare deal are Chicago, Denver, Orlando, Miami, Raleigh Durham, Phoenix and Charlotte. More will be added including Houston, Philadelphia, Columbus, Kansas City, as well as Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, and Edmonton in Canada.
The codeshare agreement is in line with Kenya Airways’ strategy to assert its presence and expand connectivity across Africa while opening opportunities for tourism, trade and investment.
In October 2018, Kenya Airways launched direct flight from Nairobi to New York, a route which has opened opportunities for both business and leisure travelers, a first of its kind in the region.
