“Our first priority now is to pursue code-share arrangements with our partners in the Skyteam Alliance. This will enable us to sell tickets to and from any US State and drive revenues directly to us”, said Kenya Airways’ Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mbuvi Ngunze.

“This process will take time but we will start immediately.”
