Kenya Airways has signed a one-way codeshare agreement with Safarilink, Kenya's premier safari airline, to open up Kenya by connecting domestic scheduled services to all the best safari destinations within Kenya and Tanzania.
The codeshare agreement means that Kenya Airways passengers will be able to combine their travel experience between respective international destinations and 18 remote destinations within Kenya and Tanzania that Safarilink operates.
The partnership will see Kenya Airways place its codeshare flight numbers on the Safarilink flights enabling customers from international destinations to seamlessly travel on safarilinks flights to their destinations.
It will also provide daily scheduled flights that will provide access to Maasai Mara, Amboseli, Samburu, Lamu, Zanzibar, Ukunda, Vipingo, Kilimanjaro, Lodwar, Kitale, Laikipia, Lewa downs, Olpajeta, Loisaba, Nanyuki and Mt. Kenya.
Over 1.3 million people toured Kenya through JKIA in 2018 with Kenya Airways being responsible for 60 per cent of overall traffic at JKIA.
