Kenya Airways has partnered with hotel booking engine, Booking.com, to sell accommodation with the aim of offering an integrated experience to its customers through its website.
Through Booking.Com, the national carrier’s customers will have access to over 800,000 hotels across the world.
“As the industry develops, customer needs are changing by the day and we need to meet their needs by providing compelling and convenient services. This partnership allows us to offer improved travel and booking experience for our guests whereby they don’t have to leave our website to book a hotel,” said Kenya Airways acting Commercial Director Thomas Omondi.
The partnership is expected to add value to KQ’s online portal for both business and leisure travelers. It will enable the airline, through its website, to offer attractive packages, with discounts associated with volume business.
Booking.com, part of the Priceline Group, owns and operates Booking.com portal from where over 1,000,000 room nights are reserved on daily. The Booking.com website and apps attract visitors from both the leisure and business sectors worldwide.
Booking.com was launched in 1996 and is available in more than 40 languages, offering 857,074 active properties in 223 countries and territories.
