South African Airways & Kenya Airways have signed a memorandum of co-operation!

South Africa's flag carrier, South African Airways, and the national airline of Kenya, Kenya Airways, have signed a memorandum of co-operation with a longer-term view to co-starting a Pan-African Airline Group that in time will enhance mutual growth potential by taking advantage of strengths of the two airlines’ busy hubs.
According to South African Airways' Interim CEO Thomas Kgokolo, the memorandum will help improve customer experience by offering a wider range of choices and destinations. It will also harness internal resources and capacities leading to sustainable and cost-effective growth. This includes shared services in the areas of route networks, fleet, and capacity deployment; exploring economic, technical as well as maintenance, repair, and overhaul opportunities to achieve economies of scale. The collaboration between South African Airways and Kenya Airways will also assist both airlines in the current and post-pandemic business and travel environment. This involves, joint recovery strategies and other cost containment strategies that will aid recovery of both carriers in an increasing competitive African airline environment.
In a next step, South African Airways and Kenya Airways will set up a joint working group to further discuss the memorandum and to put in place systems to achieve their joint stated objectives. We'll keep you posted!
