TEL AVIV (Feb. 20)
El Al and Kenya Airways have signed an agreement to exchange passengers on their respective routes.
The Kenyan airline, scheduled to start flights to Tel Aviv, will encourage its passengers to continue with El Al to European or trans-Atlantic destinations.
El Al, which has a weekly flight to South Africa via Nairobi, will feed passengers bound for other African destinations to Kenya Airways.
The Kenyan government has granted Israel landing rights at Mombasa. The Indian Ocean port will serve as a transfer point for El Al flights to Bangkok, once the Thai government approves them.
