Direct flights to US seen to lift KQ fortunes

Kenya Airways has applauded the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) decision to clear Kenya to operate direct flights to and from the United States of America (USA).  The Airline has credited the move by the regulator, the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority for its intense drive to bring Category One clearance to fruition.

Kenya Airways’ Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mbuvi Nguze, said that first priority now is to pursue codeshare arrangements with our partners in the Skyteam Alliance.  Nguze said that the clearance will enable KQ to sell tickets to and from any US State and drive revenues directly to Kenya.

“This process will take time but we will start immediately,” said Nguze in a statement.

Further, Nguze said in parallel Kenya Airways plans to undertake a commercial evaluation and discussions with the relevant authorities to determine the viability and timing of operations.” We will update on this as and when we are ready” he said.
