Delta Airlines and Kenya Airways have announced that they have expanded their codeshare partnership.
The expanded codeshare partnership includes additional destinations in the United States and also in Africa. The expanded agreement now includes 19 destinations in Africa and 25 destinations across the United States and Canada.
Kenya Airways will place its code on Delta flights from New York-JFK to Boston, Buffalo, Norfolk, Rochester and Syracuse for passengers flying on its nonstop Nairobi-New York-JFK services. On the other hand, Delta will add its code to Kenya Airways’ additional frequencies between Accra, Ghana, and Freetown, Sierra Leone; Monrovia, Liberia; and Nairobi, Kenya. Passengers will be able to connect from Delta’s daily New York-JFK Accra flights with one ticket and checked- through baggage and benefits will apply for loyalty program members for the additional services.
