Boost for Kenya Airways as Hong Kong Airlines signs codeshare deal


A new codeshare deal between Kenya Airways and Hong Kong Airlines, effective immediately, has widened connectivity between Nairobi and Hong Kong for passengers on Kenya Airways, connecting from the airline’s daily flights to Bangkok.

Kenya Airways is the second African airline Hong Kong Airlines has signed code share deals with (after Air Mauritius. The agreement is very important, as the Chinese carrier does not operate their own flights to Africa, and can now rely on KQ’s extensive continental network out of Nairobi.

The Hong Kong connection via Bangkok through the agreement with Hong Kong Airlines is a welcome addition to three direct flights Kenya Airways offers between Nairobi and the Chinese trading power house.
