KQ to fly SkyTeam colours

NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 15 – Kenya Airways has painted one of its Boeing 737-700 aircraft in SkyTeam livery to signify its position as Africa’s representative to the global airline alliance.

The aircraft will have SkyTeam branding on its tail and fuselage in addition to the Kenya Airways logo thus symbolising the mutual benefits of the partnership.
