NAIROBI (Xinhua) --
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.
