India's Jet Airways and Kenya Airways have signed a codeshare agreement, to be effective from 22 July.

Jet will place its code on Kenya Airways' daily services between Mumbai and Nairobi, says the Indian carrier.

The two airlines also agreed to allow their passengers to earn and redeem miles on one another's networks, adds Jet.

"Africa is an important market for Jet Airways and in addition to our direct service to Johannesburg, there is significant demand from our customers to travel to Kenya and beyond," says Jet's CEO Nikos Kardassis.

"We are confident that this partnership will translate into greater air traffic between India and Africa."
