President Uhuru Kenyatta has announced that Kenya Airways (KQ) and South African Airways (SAA) will partner to form Pan-African Airline. The partnership between Kenya Airways and South African Airways is expected to start in 2023.
In his New Year address on Friday, December 31, the Head of State said the move will enable continental reach and global coverage.
“To boost tourism, trade, and social engagement; and to bolster continental integration; our national carrier Kenya Airways will join hands with our partners in South Africa to establish a Pan-African Airline,” he said.
Uhuru visited South Africa late last month, and it is suspected that Kenya Airways-South African Airways deal was reached during his two-day tour.
