Kenya Airways starts operations to Mauritius and expands its cooperation with Air Mauritius
With Kenya Airways starting operations on 7 June 2018, the Kenyan airline and Air Mauritius have extended their existing codeshare into a reciprocal agreement.
Kenya Airways already places its code on the thrice weekly flights operated by Air Mauritius to Nairobi and vice versa. As a result of the expanded cooperation, Air Mauritius will now codeshare, as marketing carrier, on all Kenya Airways operated flights between Nairobi and Mauritius.
On 13 December 2017, Air Mauritius CEO, Somas Appavou and Kenya Airways CEO, Sebastian Mikosz had signed an MOU to deepen their existing collaboration at the Air Mauritius Head Office in Port Louis.
"This agreement is in line with the country's Vision 2030 and our network strategy to tap into the emerging opportunities in Africa. Kenya Airways is a strong player on the continent and has a solid network that can give us better access to East Africa, Central Africa and very soon to the USA. We value our partnership with Kenya Airways and are happy to have taken it to another level", stated Somas Appavou.
