Etihad partners with Kenya Airways

Etihad Airways will expand its reach across Africa significantly after signing a commercial partnership agreement with Kenya Airways, the national flag carrier of Kenya. Etihad will place its EY code on Kenya Airways flights from Nairobi to 27 destinations across Kenya Airways’ network in Africa. As part of the reciprocal codeshare agreement, Kenya Airways will place its KQ code on Etihad Airways’ daily service from Nairobi to Abu Dhabi and, subject to government approval, onwards to up to 32 key destinations across Etihad’s global network. Kenya Airways will also launch a new three-times-a-week service between Nairobi and Abu Dhabi from mid-summer 2013. This will give passengers improved connections and greater choice. (
