  • KQ Signs Codeshare Agreement with Hong Kong Airlines

    Nairobi, 5th January 2017
    Kenya Airways has signed a codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines (HX), on the Bangkok (BKK) – Hong Kong (HKG) route, in a bid to improve connectivity in Asia. 

    The agreement will see Hong Kong Airlines load Kenya Airways flight code on the Asian carriers’ seven daily flights between HKG and BKK from October 3, 2016. This will allow the national carrier, Kenya Airways; have a daily product between these two key business cities. 

    It will also enable Hong Kong Airlines passengers to book a through ticket to Nairobi, and the rest of Kenya Airways destinations, especially in Africa. 

    Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Mbuvi Ngunze said the partnership will enable customers of both carriers to take maximum benefit of flexibility on each other’s network.  

    “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 Mbuvi. 

    Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines said, “We are very glad to welcome Kenya Airways, a respectful international airline from Africa, as our latest codeshare partner. Hong Kong Airlines launched the route to Bangkok since 2010 and now the city has become one of our best connected destinations with 34 weekly flights currently. 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. We look forward to serving passengers from Kenya Airways on board with our Skytrax 4-star quality service.” 

    The codeshare will provide new growth opportunities for both airlines’ to work together to improve flight schedules options and connectivity. Passengers will also be able to enjoy seamless onward connection into the Far East Asia and Oceania region through this agreement.
