Emirates and Kenya Airways (KQ) have established an interline collaboration that would give both airlines’ customers access to new destinations on their respective networks via a single itinerary. Customers will benefit from more travel alternatives as well as seamless baggage check-in to their ultimate destination as a result of the partnership.
Customers of Emirates will now be able to travel from Nairobi to 28 destinations on the Kenya Airways network, including Nampula, Bangui, Bujumbara, Kigali, Dzaoudzi, Lubumbashi, Kinshasa, Kilimanjaro, Juba, and Zanzibar, among many more regional locations in Africa. A single ticket itinerary from or to Mombasa, one of the most popular vacation spots in Kenya, can also be booked by Emirates passengers flying via Dubai as part of a bilateral interline agreement.
Similarly, Kenya Airways passengers travelling from Nairobi and Mombasa will now be able to access the Emirates’ network and seamlessly connect through Dubai to 23 destinations across West and South Asia, the Far East, the Indian Ocean and Middle East such as Singapore, Tokyo, Bangkok, Ahmedabad, Beirut, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Seoul among others.
Kenya Airways recently began giving clients four weekly direct flights between Mombasa and Dubai. In addition to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the route from Moi International Airport in Mombasa became the second hub through which the airline connects travellers directly to the UAE. As of right now, KQ offers ten weekly flights from Nairobi to Dubai using a combination of B737-800 and the Dreamliner B787-800.
With regionally inspired multi-course menus created by a team of award winning chefs and a large selection of premium beverages, guests of all classes may experience a unique experience in the skies. With Emirates’ award-winning in-flight entertainment system, passengers may sit back and enjoy more than 6,500 channels of carefully curated worldwide entertainment content, including TV series, podcasts, games, audiobooks, films from East Africa, African music and more.
