(eTN) – The commencement of flight operations between Nairobi and Luanda, the capital of Angola, will apparently be code shared between TAAG, the national airline of Angola, and the Kenyan flag carrier, Kenya Airways (KQ).
Luanda will mark another milestone for the Kenya Airways – the Pride of Africa – as it will be their 50th destination and the 41st in Africa, putting KQ on top of the rankings as far as continental connectivity is concerned.
Flights will initially operate from Nairobi every Tuesday and Friday, and subject to market acceptance and load factors, more flights will be gradually introduced. The codeshare will also give TAAG added reach as their own passengers can fly via Nairobi to the Middle East, India, and the Far and South East with Kenya Airways.
At the same time, the source also confirmed that the first of the recently leased two new Embraer 190 will join the KQ fleet in early November with the second aircraft following shortly afterwards.
