The agreement presents new growth opportunities for both airlines.

Kenya Airways announced on Friday that it has signed an interline agreement that will extend the airlines reach in the Southern Africa region via Johannesburg and Cape Town. 

Kenya Airways customers flying to South Africa will be able to connect with Airlink operated flights to destinations including Windhoek, Durban, Gaborone, Maseru, Pemba, Maputo and Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth).

It will also enable Airlink passengers to book a through ticket to Nairobi and connections to the rest of Kenya Airways destinations within Africa.

"The agreement presents new growth opportunities for both airlines and will strengthen aviation ties between Kenya and Southern Africa. This partnership also plays a significant role economically, improving trade exchange and spurring tourism across the continent," Julius Thairu, Kenya Airways' acting chief commercial officer said in a statement.

Earlier this year, Ethiopian Airlines announced an interline partnership with local airline CemAir. CemAir also has an interline partnership with Qatar Airways.

Effective from October last year, a code share agreement between Ethiopian and South African Airways was suspended. In January this year, SAA announced that its code share agreement with Emirates continues.
