Kenya Airways and Air Mauritius have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to expand their collaboration and enhance their respective networks, it was announced late Wednesday.

Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and CEO Sebastian Mikosz said in a statement that the code-sharing agreement will provide customers of the two airlines more possibilities for connections at their hubs in Nairobi and Mauritius.

“The MoU will therefore provide synergies to both airlines networks to expand their networks and destinations,” Mikosz said.

The two airlines have already signed a code-share agreement, under which Kenya Airways places its code on the three weekly flights operated by Air Mauritius on the Mauritius-Nairobi route.

Mikosz said the MoU is therefore an extension of the existing code sharing agreement under which Kenya Airways uses Mauritius as a platform to connect on the Air Mauritius network.

Air Mauritius, in turn utilizes Nairobi as a hub from which it offers connections to a number of destinations in Eastern and Central Africa through Kenya Airways.

Somas Appavou, Air Mauritius CEO, said the code sharing agreement is in line with Mauritius national development blue print of tapping into growing opportunities in Africa. Enditem
