Kenya Airways has its hub in Nairobi. This code-share partnership started Aug. 11 with Delta putting its code on Kenya Airways flights to Nairobi from Amsterdam, Paris, London and Accra, allowing for easier connections from the United States.

Delta will also put its code on Kenya Airways flights to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Lilongwe, Malawi; Maputo, Mozambique; Johannesburg, South Africa and Djibouti City.

Delta operates its own flights to Johannesburg; Lagos, Nigeria; Accra, Ghana and Dakar, Senegal.
