Kenya Airways granted 3rd frequency to Luanda, Angola

The governments of Kenya and Angola have finally signed a Bilateral Air Services Agreement (BASA), so that Kenya's flag carrier Kenya Airways can now expand its operations into Angola. As a result of the BASA, Kenya Airways will now operate up to 3 weekly frequencies to Angola. The BASA also allows Kenya Airways to operate its route schedule from Kenya to any points in Angola with a provision of operating to destinations beyond using Angola as an intermediate point. This provides the airline with an opportunity to fly to South America via Luanda. The agreement also allows enhanced code share arrangements with TAAG Angola Airlines as well as other Kenya Airways’ partners with underlying traffic rights. Kenya Airways launched flights to Luanda in Angola in August 2010 operating 2 weekly flights. TAAG Angola Airlines code shares on the route with Kenya Airways.
