Alliance KQ-KLM-Air France to end 2021

How strategies of Kenya Airways will change

28-12-2020 by redazione

Goodbye to Kenya Airways' partnership with KLM and Air France.
The end of the strategic-economic collaboration that bound the Kenyan flag carrier with the Dutch and French companies, in fact united for years in a single financial group and founders of the "Sky Alliance" group, was announced by Kenya Airways CEO Allan Kilavuka with effect from September 2021.
Kilavuka however announced that the Nairobi-based carrier will continue to fly to Europe through the classic channels which are London, Paris and Amsterdam, while Rome in the company's plans should restart early next year.
"This development will allow Kenya Airways to offer additional options and convenience to our customers connecting through our European gateways, in line with our goal of supporting the recovery of international tourism in Kenya and connecting Africa to the world, and the world to Africa," Kilavuka pointed out.
The two airlines had earlier suspended the Joint Venture cooperation for the calendar year 2020 mainly due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting unpredictability of the return to normal operations.
Kilavuka said Kenya Airways will continue to be a member of 'Sky Team Alliance' and the loyalty programme will continue to apply on all partner flights.
The unbundling from KLM-Air France, will also allow the Kenyan company to codeshare with other airlines, including Alitalia, British Airways, Lufthansa and Swiss Airlines.
Kenya Airways before the pandemic operated more than 70 flights a day, flying to 53 destinations worldwide, including 43 in Africa.
