Oman Air inks code-share deal with Kenya Airways

Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate, said it has implemented a codeshare agreement with Kenya Airways (KQ) covering services between its hub Muscat and Nairobi.

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, said a statement from the national carrier.

On the Nairobi – Muscat route, KQ will place its codeshare flight numbers on the Oman Air flights operating on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, it added.

Commenting on the new code share agreement, CEO Paul Gregorowitsch said: "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 is a natural progression, following the launch of our new flight from Muscat to Nairobi in March this year."

Oman Air's strategy, he stated, 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 organizations from around the world, he added.  
Sebastian Mikosz, the managing director and chief executive of Kenya Airways Group, said this new codeshare agreement represents an important element of its strategy to increase the choice, convenience and connectivity that Kenya Airways offers its customers.

"The code-share partnerships and airline alliances continue to play an important role for Kenya Airways in improving the airlines competitive offering," noted Mikosz.

"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," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
