Kenya Airways’ customers can now pay for their air tickets through M-PESA, a mobile money transfer service run by Vodacom Tanzania, following the signing of a new strategic partnership between the two firms last week.
The new deal follows similar Kenya Airways’ partnerships struck with Safaricom in Kenya and MTN in Uganda. Customers in Tanzania now have the choice of paying for their air tickets in cash, by credit card or through the mobile money transfer service.
KQs’ Head of Information Systems Development, Henry Obare, noted that this partnership will allow the airline’s customers in Tanzania to plan and pay for their travel from wherever they are.

Kenya Airways flies four times a day between its hub in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, and once daily to and from Kilimanjaro.
