Kenya Airways PLC and Airlink (PTY) Ltd. signed an interline agreement that extends Kenya Airways’ reach in the Southern Africa region. The new agreement offers customers seamless travel to over 40 cities across Africa.

Kenya Airways continues to diversify its services and operations in response to customers’ needs. Under this latest agreement, Kenya Airways customers flying to South Africa can connect with Airlink-operated flights to Windhoek, Durban, Gaborone, Maseru, Pemba, Maputo, Port Elizabeth, among others. It also enables Airlink passengers to book a through ticket to Nairobi and enjoy connections to  Kenya Airways destinations within Africa, including Entebbe, Kigali, Dar es Salaam, Bujumbura, Kinshasa, and more.

The agreement presents new growth opportunities for both airlines. It also strengthens aviation ties between Kenya and South Africa. This partnership plays a significant economic role, improving trade exchange and spurring tourism across the continent. “As global economies continue to reel from the effects of the pandemic, such strategic partnerships are critical. These new routes will positively impact the flow of trade and tourism across the region by offering our customers convenient travel around the continent,” said Julius Thairu, Kenya Airways Acting Chief Commercial Officer.

In 2020 Kenya Airways was named Africa’s Leading Airline by the World Travel Awards. It continues to modernize its fleet with its 32 aircraft being some of the youngest in Africa. This includes its flagship 787 Dreamliner aircraft. Kenya Airways offers cargo services to key locations including London, Amsterdam, Guangzhou, Sharjah, Mumbai, and over 25 intra-Africa routes in addition to its passenger network. Kenya Airways takes pride in being at the forefront of connecting Africa to the World and the World to Africa through its hub at the new ultra-modern Terminal 1A at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.

Airlink was established in 1992 and is an independent, privately-owned, and BBBEE airline. It offers travelers a wide choice of flights across its comprehensive network of Southern African destinations, which it serves with a fleet of more than 50 modern jetliners. In 2019 Airlink carried more than two million customers on more than 63,000 flights and its network includes more than 30 destinations in 10 African countries and St. Helena. Airlink was South Africa’s most punctual airline in 2020. In February 2021 97.87% of Airlink flights departed on time. - AirInsight Group
