JOHANNESBURG - South African Airways and Kenya Airways are looking to create a pan-African airline group.

They are signing a memorandum of co-operation, with the long-term goal of starting the group.

One of the main objectives of the memorandum is to enhance the growth potential of the two airlines on the African continent.

They hope the partnership will also help turn around both their fortunes.

SAA returned to the skies last week after an 18-month break.

Travel and airlines have been battered by the coronavirus pandemic and the collaboration is set to revive business.

The agreement will not prevent the airlines from partnering with other carriers.
