Safarilink and Kenya Airways sign codeshare agreement


1 min read

Safarilink Aviation and Kenya Airways PLC have announced a one-way codeshare agreement.

The codeshare agreement means, that effective 3 November, Kenya Airways’ international passengers will be able to combine their travel experience between respective international destinations and 18 destinations that Safarilink operates within Kenya and to Tanzania.

Kenya Airways Chief Executive Officer Sebastian Mikosz said, “As part of our strategy to continue growing the network, we have seen the need to give travel ease to our customers by connecting their destinations. This partnership with Safarilink will significantly open up Kenya’s tourist destinations to international travellers by allowing passengers to connect from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) to Wilson Airport and eventually to their respective safari destinations which is a great convenience to them.”

The partnership will see Kenya Airways place its codeshare flight numbers on the Safarilink flights so that when customers from international destinations book online, they are able to book with connectivity to all  Safarilink destinations.

Commenting on the codeshare agreement, Safarilink Aviation Chief Executive Officer Alex Avedi said, “We are very pleased to be entering into this significant partnership with Kenya Airways which will provide seamless connection of passengers from the airline’s network straight into Kenya and Tanzania’s world-famous parks.”
