Carriers extend reach into Africa


Silk Way West Airlines has signed an interline agreement with Kenya’s Astral Aviation to move shipments to its Dubai hub where it will hand over to its partner’s flight to Nairobifor connection to its network – and vice-versa.

The agreement will allow Silk Way West Airlines to broaden its network in Africa, a continent where it currently has no scheduled services.

Qatar Airways has meanwhile launched passenger flights between Doha and Lusaka, Zambia and Harare, Zimbabwe. The Airbus A350-900 will offer more than 30 tonnes of cargo capacity per week, each way.
