Kenya’s flag carrier airline Kenya Airways said Friday it has reached an agreement with American airline Delta Air Lines to activate its codeshare with Delta in the United States and Canada.
Kenya Airways chief executive officer Sebastian Mikosz said the partnership will enable both the business and leisure travelers to enjoy greater connectivity and efficiency in 11 U.S. cities and four Canadian cities.
“As part of our commitment to the New York route, we are proud to be a part of this partnership that will open up opportunities for our customers to access more destinations in North America through the John F. Kennedy airport,” Mikosz said in a statement issued in Nairobi.
He said the Kenyan carrier will increase its frequency to New York from five days a week to seven days a week from June.
Kenya Airways in October 2018 launched direct flights between Nairobi and New York.
