    Kenya Airways (KQ) will launch new routes to Rome and Geneva starting June this year as the airline seeks to expand its base and cash in more revenue in the wake of heightened competition from other players.

    Kenya Airways brings Italy and Switzerland within network


    Rome and Geneva are to join Kenya Airways' network this summer.
    The carrier says it will start four-times-weekly flights from Nairobi to Rome in June, using a Boeing 787. The flights will then continue to Geneva before returning from there to Nairobi.
    Kenya Airways chief executive Sebastian Mikosz describes Geneva as a "global hub for diplomacy", noting that the city hosts the UN headquarters, offering a "perfect complement to Nairobi, which is also Africa's hub for the UN, among other international agencies".
    FlightGlobal schedules data shows no links between Nairobi and Rome or Geneva. Swiss operates to the Kenyan capital from Zurich. Italian carrier Neos operates flights from Milan Malpensa and Verona to another Kenyan city, Mombasa, while Air Italy also offers connections from Milan to Mombasa.
    Kenya Airways previously operated to Rome between D ecember 2010 and May 2012. The SkyTeam carrier has never flown to Geneva.

    Si parlava (o scriveva) di un'apertura di NBO da parte di AZ: chissà se la mossa di Kenya Airways stopperà i piani di Alitalia o se, invece, li rafforzerà, considerato che le due compagnie fanno parte della stessa alleanza Skyteam

    Evidentemente qualcuno a KQ ha dato via libera.

    Questi gli orari

    KQ 124 NBO FCO 23.50 06.10(+1) [--3---7]
    KQ 128 NBO FCO 23.50 09.50(+1) [1---5--] via GVA

    KQ 128 FCO NBO 11.05 19.05 [-2---6-]
    KQ 124 FCO NBO 07.30 19.10 [1--4---] via GVA



    Sono operativi triangolari, 2 volte la settimana NBO-FCO-GVA-NBO, altre 2 volte con giro contrario NBO-GVA-FCO-NBO. Così facendo si hanno 4 voli settimanali di cui 2 per ogni direzione sono nonstop (sia da Ginevra che da Roma).
    Se in c/s con Alitalia gli orari si incastrano bene per eventuali transiti, anche per gli USA per esempio.

    Ma avranno anche la 5th freedom per vendere FCO-GVA ? Oppure devono sperare in un C/S con un EU carrier ad esempio AZ visto che entrambe sono in Sky team ?

    Con il ritorno del volo KQ in Italia ritorna anche l'accordo di codeshare AZ-KQ (stavolta con un network ampliato).


    Kenya Airways and Alitalia start codeshare agreement More choice and benefits for both airlines’ travelers on Europe-Africa

    Rome, Nairobi, 18 March 2019 –Kenya Airways and Alitalia, partner airlines in the SkyTeam alliance, have signed a broad codeshare agreement connecting the networks of the two companies. This new commercial partnership is bound to boost business travel and tourism between Italy and Kenya, giving tourists and businessmen more travel options and better flight schedules also when travelling to central and southern Africa and to Europe through the two airlines’ hubs in Rome and Nairobi.
    The new codeshare flights are available for sale through the airlines’ reservation systems and in travel agencies from 14 March 2019, for travels from 12 June 2019 when Kenya Airways will inaugurate its four-weekly service between Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi and Leonardo da Vinci International Airport in Fiumicino, Rome.
    Thanks to the codeshare agreement, Alitalia will apply its ‘AZ’ code on many services operated by Kenya Airways beyond Nairobi to Mombasa and Kisumu in Kenya, as well as to a further 19 African destinations, such as: Abidjan (Ivory Coast); Accra (Ghana); Addis Ababa (Ethiopia); Antananarivo (Madagascar); Brazzaville (Congo); Dar Es Salaam, Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar (Tanzania); Douala (Cameroon); Johannesburg (South Africa); Kigali (Rwanda); Khartoum (Sudan); Kinshasa and Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of Congo); Lagos (Nigeria); Maputo and Nampula (Mozambique); Moroni-Hahaya (Comoros); Seychelles.
    Alitalia is also widening its network in Africa, where the Italian airline now operates direct services to Johannesburg, Casablanca, Algeri, Tunis and Cairo, by placing its “AZ” flight code on Kenya Airways’ new service between Rome and Nairobi.
    Similarly, Kenya Airways will expand its offer to Italy and Europe by placing its ‘KQ’ flight code on Alitalia’s services from Rome to 16 Italian domestic destinations (Brindisi, Bologna, Bari, Catania, Florence, Genoa, Lamezia Terme, Milan Malpensa, Naples, Palermo, Pisa, Reggio Calabria, Turin, Trieste, Venice and Verona) and to 9 international destinations (Athens, Barcelona, Casablanca, Geneva, Larnaca, Madrid, Malaga, Malta and Valencia).
    Thanks to the codeshare agreement, customers can fly seamlessly to their desired destination with a single ‘unique’ ticket, checking-in at the airport of departure, and collecting their checked-through baggage at the end of their trip in the arrival airport.
    Besides the new codeshare services and more convenient flight connections, Kenya Airways and Alitalia customers will have the opportunity to earn and redeem miles on the entire network operated by both airlines.

    I CS sono sempre un' ottima cosa. In questo caso i cs sono piuttosto estesi, e mi sembra un' ottima mossa da parte di Az per ampliare, anche se non con suo metallo, il network non potendolo fare per il blocco all' aumento della flotta durante l' AS.
