Delta and KQ enhance partnership


According to Aviation Tribune, Delta Air Lines has reached an agreement with Kenya Airways to offer connecting flights between Monrovia, Liberia, and Accra, Ghana.

The service will begin on 1 September, operating three times a week on a Boeing 737 aircraft operated by Kenya Airways. The KQ flight will offer connections to Delta’s nonstop flights between Accra’s Kotoka International Airport and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

This service replaces Delta’s three-times weekly operations from Monrovia’s Roberts International Airport to Accra, Ghana. Passengers connecting onto Delta’s Accra to New York-JFK services from KQ will enjoy through check-in for their entire journey from Monrovia – collecting their boarding passes and checking in luggage from Monrovia through to their final destination in the United States.

Delta’s sales office will remain open in Liberia and continue to sell tickets to the U.S. Delta will also continue selling tickets from the U.S. to Liberia.

Delta’s daily services between Accra and New York are operated with a Boeing 767-300 aircraft with 225 seats, comprising 25 seats in Business Elite, 29 in Premium Economy and 171 seats in Economy.
