Virgin Atlantic, Kenya Airways announce airline codeshare pact

Tuesday, 19 Mar, 2024 1

Virgin Atlantic and Kenya Airways have inked a new airline codeshare partnership agreement, providing greater access to Nairobi and beyond into East Africa.

The first phase of the agreement has now launched, which allows Virgin Atlantic customers to book flights on Kenya Airways’ Heathrow to Nairobi service.

In turn, Kenya Airways customers will soon have the opportunity to connect via London Heathrow onto Virgin Atlantic’s Caribbean flights, including Barbados, the Bahamas, Grenada and St Vincent and the Grenadines.

Kenya Airways is a fellow member of the SkyTeam alliance.

Virgin Atlantic’s Gold and Silver Flying Club members, along with Kenya Airways Asante Rewards Platinum and Gold members can take advantage of SkyPriority services at London Heathrow and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

This provides priority check in, baggage handling and expedited boarding.

Flying Club members can earn Virgin Points by booking luxury safari holidays through both Virgin Atlantic Holidays and Virgin Limited Edition.

Juha Jarvinen, CCO at Virgin Atlantic, said: “We’re delighted to launch our airline codeshare with Kenya Airways. As a fellow member of the SkyTeam alliance, we know our customers will enjoy a seamless travel experience.”

“As the only UK airline to codeshare on the Nairobi route, we’ll be providing more choice and flexibility for customers booking with Virgin Atlantic.”

Access to Kenya from the UK is now more seamless than ever before.

From January this year, visitors from outside of Africa, including the UK, only require an online authorisation to travel to Kenya, instead of a full visa.
