Delta’s flight code is placed on Kenya Airways’ flights from Amsterdam, Paris, London, and Accra to Nairobi, enhancing connectivity and providing customers with a seamless one-stop travel experience from the United States.
In addition, Delta has placed the code on Kenya Airways’ services to more than ten key cities across Africa, including Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Lilongwe, Malawi; Maputo, Mozambique; Johannesburg, South Africa and Djibouti City, Djibout.
Corneel Koster, Delta senior vice president, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India, said: “Delta is the leading carrier between the United States and Africa.
