Kenya Airways PLC (KQ) has suspended flights to two key European destinations due to tough new restrictions put in place after the upsurge in Covid-19 infections in the region.
Kenya’s national carrier announced Friday 22nd January that it had temporarily stopped flight to France – Charles de Gaulle Airport and the Netherlands – Schiphol Airport through the month of February 2021. “The temporary suspension is due to the new COVID-19 regulations in Europe that have resulted in depressed demand,” the airline said through its corporate communications office.
The statement says KQ flights to Europe are expected to resume regular services to France on 3 March 2021 and to the Netherlands on 7 March 2021, the statement says.
“KQ would like to thank all customers who had booked their flights to these two destinations, and will ensure that alternative flight options are made for their travel,” said the statement. “The airline sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused as a result of these cancellations.”
Kenya Airways, a member of the Sky Team Alliance, is a leading African airline flying to 46 destinations worldwide, 33 of which are in Africa and transports over four million passengers annually.
