Kenya Airways in codeshare deal with Hong Kong Airlines

Jan 17, 2017: Sealing a new deal to enhance connectivity between Asia and Africa, Kenya Airways has entered into a codeshare partnership with Hong Kong Airlines.

This codeshare arrangement will allow passengers to book single-ticket travel between Nairobi, Bangkok and Hong Kong, with a combination of the two carriers.

Kenya Airways operates daily flights between Nairobi and Bangkok, and will place its KQ code on Hong Kong Airlines’ regular flights between the two capital cities.

“This partnership will enable us and Hong Kong Airlines to offer our customers seamless connection, especially for our passengers in the region who mainly travel to these Asian cities for business. Our guests will now be able to enjoy daily flights between Hong Kong and Nairobi up from the current three weekly flights,” said Kenya Airways’ group managing director & CEO, Mbuvi Ngunze.

The Hong Kong-Bangkok route was launched by Hong Kong Airlines in 2010 and currently operates 34 weekly flights on the route.

“The codeshare enables passengers of Kenya Airways to choose from our flights between Hong Kong and Bangkok connecting their journey to and from Nairobi with much flexibility,” said Hong Kong Airlines’ chief commercial officer, Li Dianchun.
