Kenya Airways and RwandAir planning strategic partnership

Kenya Airways and RwandAir announced (20-Dec-2012) plans to form a strategic partnership and build stronger relations. The airlines said passengers will benefit from improved synergies in scheduling and passenger handling, refinement of reservation systems and a combined FFP. The partnership will also strengthen the airlines' cargo, maintenance and flight training operations. Kenya Airways CEO Dr Titus Naikuni said, "In line with our strategy to exploit the untapped economic potential of the African continent, this partnership with RwandAir allows us, together with our colleagues in African aviation, to further strengthen and enhance our services and network." RwandAir chairman Girma Wake said, "We’re pleased to have agreed to this cooperation intent with Kenya Airways. We can now offer more choice for passengers who wish to travel to Rwanda where tourism, trade and investment are on the rise. It is important that we provide the right infrastructure together with partner airlines." [more - original PR]
