Oman Air, the sultanate`s national carrier, announced that it has implemented a codeshare agreement with Kenya Airways (KQ) covering services between its Muscat platform and Nairobi. The new partnership will enable seamless connectivity for Kenya Airways customers who access Muscat directly from Nairobi. Oman Air launched flights to Nairobi last March, a statement from the national airline said.

CEO Paul Gregorovitch commented on the new codeshare agreement: “Through this partnership, Oman Air is expanding its exemplary services for Kenya Airways customers. Trade between Kenya and Oman has grown steadily over the years, and this recent agreement is a natural development after the launch of our new Muscat-Nairobi flight last March.
