Mr Kilavuka (above) who has been acting as the Group CEO was praised by the KQ Board Chairman Michael Joseph for multitasking and maintaining higher productivity for the airline.

“It is particularly gratifying for me that the Board agreed to support the appointment Allan to the full role of substantive CEO.

He took up the position on an acting capacity on December 16, 2019, after Polish expatriate, Sebastian Mikosz left the position citing personal concerns.
