Country’s national courier Kenya Airways is very ready to resume flights. This is according to the airline’s CEO Michael Joseph. The CEO says the country needs to fly and that as soon as the Head of State lifts the restrictions, they are ready to start flying.
Last week, Kenya Airways – KQ officials say implementing social distancing post COVID-19 would make ticket prices very expensive making flying uneconomical and unsustainable.
Officials told shareholders during the annual general meeting Friday that the airline is optimistic that the government will ease travel restrictions next month.
They however called on authorities not to impose social distancing requirements, noting that it will make air tickets very expensive.
The national carrier says it has so far lost 10 billion shillings to due COVID-19 related travel restrictions and the amount could hit 50 billion shillings if flights are grounded for the rest of the year.
