Kenya Airways is teaming up with South Africa’s Airlink in the form of an interline agreement. This agreement will allow for a combination of Kenya Airways/Airlink itineraries, allowing passengers from one airline to connect to additional destinations on the other carrier’s network.

Kenya Airways customers flying to South Africa will be able to connect with Airlink operated flights to Windhoek, Durban, Gaborone, Maseru, Pemba, Maputo, Port Elizabeth, among others.

It will also enable Airlink passengers to book a through ticket to Nairobi and enjoy connections to the rest of Kenya Airways destinations within Africa, including Accra, Addis Ababa, Kigali, Bujumbura, Dar es Salaam, Entebbe, Kinshasa and more.

The agreement is expected to presents new growth opportunities for both airlines and will strengthen aviation ties between Kenya and Southern Africa. This will extend the airlines reach in the Southern Africa region via Johannesburg and Cape Town. The new agreement will offer customers seamless travel of over 40 cities across Africa.

According to the statement released by the Acting Chief Commercial Officer, Julius Thairu said, “These new routes will positively impact the flow of trade and tourism across the region by offering our customers convenient travel around the continent,”

This partnership also plays a significant role economically, improving trade exchange and spurring tourism across the continent. The fascinating thing about this agreement is that it does not include Kenya Airways’ broader intercontinental network and overseas destinations such as Paris, London, Mumbai etc. Unluckily for Airlink customers across the Southern Africa region, they will be limited to Kenya Airways destinations within Africa.
