Kenya Airways is developing a pan-African approach similar to Ethiopian Airlines to reduce poor flight connectivity in the region as the carrier is beginning to expand its frontiers. The approach is a response to the Covid-crisis, the airline’s CEO Allan Kilavuka explained on October 13 in an interview with Center for Aviation (CAPA) Live. Kenya Airways boss believes in pan-African approach.

The airline sector has been one of the most vulnerable to both the impact of the pandemic and the various lockdown restrictions. Passenger numbers and revenues plummeted, with some airlines forced to mothball their entire operations. Africa’s biggest carriers have responded in very different ways and there is a growing feeling that the crisis has speeded up ongoing developments in the industry, with struggling airlines forced to take desperate measures and the few success stories becoming increasingly dominant.
