Kenya Airways: “The Board has taken cognisance of the anticipated traffic demand in 2011 and the pressures on yields due to escalating fuel prices. This implies that Kenya Airways has to implement appropriate strategies to enhance growth and profitability. The main drivers of improved performance are passenger numbers, better yields and more stringent cost management. The airline will therefore continue opening new routes on a selective basis, investing in its fleet development, training staff and improving its systems. Management is committed to offering a more competitive product through, inter alia, improved on-time performance in order to meet and exceed customer expectations,” Evanson Mwaniki, Chairman.
