Oman Air has implemented a codeshare agreement with Kenya Airways (KQ) covering services between Muscat and Nairobi effective August 28, 2017. The new partnership will allow seamless connectivity to Kenya Airways customers in accessing Muscat directly from Nairobi. Oman Air launched its flights to Nairobi in March this year.
On the Nairobi – Muscat route, KQ will place its codeshare flight numbers on the Oman Air flights operating on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
On the new code share agreement, Paul Gregorowitsch, CEO, Oman Air said, “Oman Air is very happy with the implementation of this code share agreement with Kenya Airways. Through this partnership, Oman Air extends its exemplary services to guests of Kenya Airways. Trade between Kenya and Oman has been growing steadily over the years and this latest agreement with Kenya Airways is a natural progression, following the launch of our new flight from Muscat to Nairobi in March this year.”
Oman Air's strategy reflects the country's national character and the Omani people's legendary hospitality and their culture of friendliness. This, combined with its internationally acclaimed services, has resulted in various important awards and accolades being bestowed by many prestigious organisations from around the world. Kenya Airways Group managing director and CEO, Sebastian Mikosz, said, “This new codeshare agreement represents an important element of our strategy to increase the choice, convenience and connectivity that Kenya Airways offers its customers. The codeshare partnerships and airline alliances continue to play an important role for Kenya Airways in improving the airlines competitive offering.”
Through this partnership, Kenya Airways extends its services to tourists as well as to those who are visiting friends and families, in Oman -- through the cultural links that Oman shares with the coastal parts of East Africa -- especially Kenya and Tanzania.
