DELTA Airlines has expanded its offering in Africa through interline and codeshare agreements, providing one-stop connections to the US from Johannesburg, says Jimmy Eichelgruen. “Our interline agreement with Kulula means customers flying on Delta’s Johannesburg- Atlanta route can connect on to Kulula-operated flights to/ from key South African cities, including Cape Town, Durban, East London and George.
The new agreement is in addition to existing interline partnerships with Comair and SAA that offer flights to/from destinations including Port Elizabeth, Harare, Victoria Falls, Livingstone and Windhoek,” he says. Elsewhere in Africa, Delta has codeshares with Kenya Airways on flights between Nairobi, Amsterdam, Paris and London, offering greater connectivity and more one- stop travel options to the US. Delta passengers can also travel from South Africa and other cities across Africa via Paris and Amsterdam on Delta codeshares with Air France and KLM.
Jimmy says Delta offers same-airline connections to more than 200 destinations via Atlanta. “Our Johannesburg flight is timed to make connecting extremely easy and convenient via Atlanta, with customers able to reach cities like Los Angeles and Dallas in time for lunch the next day.”
