Kenya Airways has gained access to four routes operated by Spain’s third largest carrier, Air Europa in a codesharing agreement signed between the two airlines.

The flag carrier says the agreement has significantly expanded customers’ travel options by providing access and convenience as guests will enjoy benefits such as the purchase of a single ticket, a single check-in, and connections with minimum waiting times, among others.

“We are excited about this partnership as it will provide our guests with more convenient travel options to Europe and the United States. Air Europa has been our partner under the SkyTeam Alliance, and this agreement allows us to collaborate more for the mutual benefit of our guests giving them more access and connectivity,” said Martin Gitonga, Kenya Airways Head of Network Planning and Alliances.

Under the deal, Kenya Airways will market flights from Amsterdam to Madrid, Madrid to Palma de Mallorca, Madrid to New York, and Miami while Air Europa passengers will fly to Nairobi from Amsterdam.

“In addition to working with one of the most established and prestigious airlines in Africa, this alliance allows us to significantly expand our reach in a region with growing demand, which will certainly be of great benefit to our customers,” added Estelle Leray, Air Europa’s Director of Alliances.
