(eTN) - Information was received on Monday that Kenya Airways (KQ) has signed an extensive codeshare deal with India airline, Jet Airways. Kenya Airways is currently flying daily to Mumbai – formerly Bombay – and has been seeking to expand their presence in this important market for a while now.

Jet Airways in turn has also been trying to add more African destinations beyond their present destination Johannesburg, but neither airline had until this point made much progress.

The codeshare arrangement on the Nairobi to Mumbai route will, however, open up added destinations, which in India will be operated by Jet Airways, while Indian passengers can connect to the entire continent via Kenya Airways’ Nairobi hub, from where daily connections serve most destinations to Southern and Western African capitals.
