Kenya Airways activates codeshare in the US market

Kenya Airways has activated its codeshare with Delta Airlines. The arrangement is an opportunity for travelers to connect from New York, using the direct flight from Nairobi, to other cities within the US and Canada.

Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz said, “As part of our commitment to the New York route, we are proud to be a part of this partnership that will open up opportunities for our customers to access more destinations in North America through the John F. Kennedy Airport.”

The CEO said the New York route continues to be a strategic route for Kenya Airways and as an Airline we are firmly committed to it as we gear up for Summer 2019 season which is a high-flying season. Beginning June, Kenya Airways will increase its frequency to New York from 5 days a week to 7 days a week. This is expected to open more opportunities for travelers to take advantage of this route during this high season.

In October 2018, Kenya Airways launched direct flight from Nairobi to New York, a first of its kind in the region.
