Silk Way West Airlines has signed an interline agreement with Kenya’s Astral Aviation, as the former expands its African footprint.

The UAE’s Al Maktoum International Airport – also known as Dubai World Central (DWC) – will function as the key transit point. Silk Way West Airlines will carry shipments from its network to Dubai handing it over to Astral Aviation’s flight to Nairobi, where shipments will connect to its network, respectively.

The inverse will occur with Astral Aviation’s network from its base in Nairobi.
