Kenya airways lauds Category One clearance for by aviation agency

By James Wanzala | February 25th 2017

Kenya Airways has welcomed the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) decision to clear Kenya to operate direct flights to and from the United States of America. The airline applauds the efforts by the regulator, Kenya Civil Aviation Authority, for its intense drive to bring Category One clearance to fruition.

“Our first priority now is to pursue codeshare arrangements with our partners in the Skyteam Alliance. This will enable us to sell tickets to and from any US State and drive revenues directly to us,” said Kenya Airways Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mbuvi Ngunze. “This process will take time but we will start immediately,” he added.

Kenya Airways also plans to undertake a commercial evaluation and discussions with the relevant authorities to determine the viability and timing of operations. “We will update on this as and when we are ready,” Ngunze said.
