Kenya Airways abbreviated as KQ has been under struggles sometimes back to rise up to its feet. The major Kenyan air travel provider was at the verge of collapse but luckily it had its nose on air. As per press release today the management has signed a savior deal.
On other hand, KLM is a Dutch airline headquartered in Amsterdam.
Kenya Airways and KLM have signed an extended agreement for most European and Eastern African countries that are in focus of co-operation.
The two airlines already have an agreement under which they operate in London and Amsterdam routes into Nairobi. The new agreement enables them to sell more joint flights to/from Europe and East Africa and other destinations beyond Amsterdam and Nairobi.
Commenting on this, The KQ managing director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz said,”KQ is working towards strengthening its network and consolidating Nairobi’s leading position as African hub. The network of the Airlines is complementary and we are confident this agreement will find synergies for us to grow our respective networks.”
“We continuously want to create value for our customers and in doing so we are excited to deepen co-operation with Kenya Airways. This is good news to us and our customers,” stated Peiter Elbers, KLM CEO.
