Kenya Airways expands fleet
The addition of a Boeing 767–300 would help the airline reduce travel times between Nairobi and the Far East, said the airline.
The company said that it would expand its fleet further with four Boeing 737-800 aircraft expected before the end of this financial year. This was part of the carrier’s fleet modernisation programme.
The airline said it would launch lights to Brazzaville, Congo and Cotonou, Benin by September.
Flights to Douala, Cameroon were recently launched too, and frequencies to Entebbe, Uganda and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania have been increased.
Competition in West Africa has been on the rise, with Ethiopian Airlines providing a stiff challenge to its southern neighbour. Ethiopian revised its strategy and was using Addis Ababa as a regional hub. -BiA Online
