Kenya Airways CEO: Partnership with SAA 'is the first of many'
Kenya Airways Group MD and CEO Allan Kilavuka, speaking at CAPA Live from Puerto Rico October 2021, stated (13-Oct-2021) the airline's recently announced partnership with South African Airways (SAA) "is the first of many". Mr Kilavuka said: "We're open to have other joiners. This is not an exclusive club". Regarding the plan to create a pan-African airline group with SAA, Mr Kilavuka said: "This is going to be, in my opinion, one of the most fundamental developments in African aviation for a long time to come. If we do it successfully, I think it will change the face of aviation, it will help us grow, it will help reduce unit costs, it will help our efficiencies, it will help connectivity".
