Oman Air and Kenya extend codeshare agreement
Agreement will increase the number destinations available to guests
Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, and Kenya Airways, the national carrier of Kenya, have expanded their codeshare cooperation.
The two airlines first signed up for the agreement in August 2017.
The codeshare expansion, effective 1 October 2019, will connect Oman Air guests travelling beyond Nairobi to Entebbe, Uganda and Johannesburg, South Africa.
Similarly, Kenya Airways guests can now extend their travel beyond Muscat to Karachi and Lahore, Pakistan.
The following destinations will be added, subject to government and regulatory approvals for Oman Air guests traveling beyond Nairobi to Dar Es Salam, Tanzania and for Kenya Airways guests travelling beyond Muscat to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and the Indian cities of Bangalore, Chennai, New Delhi and Hyderabad.
Commenting on the new code share agreement, Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air said: “We are very happy with the extension of this codeshare, which offers our guests an opportunity to travel beyond Nairobi and Muscat. We have been successfully promoting Kenya throughout our network of destinations. This codeshare extension is a result of the steady growth of visitors between the two countries, which is facilitated through our operations that connect our network with Nairobi. With Oman Air’s easy connections to Asia, India and the GCC, we are confident that this extended codeshare will open up more opportunities for the airline and the country”.
