Kenya Airways and KLM have signed an extended GSA Agreement for most European and Eastern African countries which are the focus of the cooperation.
The two airlines already have a longstanding Joint Venture (JV) agreement under which Kenya Airways and KLM operate on the London and Amsterdam routes into Nairobi.
The new agreement enables KQ and KLM to sell more JV flights to and from Europe and East Africa and destinations beyond Amsterdam and Nairobi.
“Kenya Airways is working towards strengthening its network and consolidating Nairobi’s position as a leading hub in East Africa. The networks of both airlines are complementary and we are confident that this agreement will allow us to find the synergies for us to grow our respective networks,” Kenya Airways Chief executive Sebastian Mikosz said
On the other hand, KLM chief executive Pieter Elbers noted that the new phase will create more value to customers.
