It doesn't always have to be a 1 on 1 replacement, the smaller Embraers gives them a bit more flexibility to use the right capacity on every route. That's always good for the load factor statistics

KQ passenger numbers remain flat
http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/K...j/-/index.html

Quote:
IN SUMMARY:
  • The Middle East and Asia routes account for 19 per cent of the carriers revenues.
  • African routes, which account for half of KQs sales, recorded a 0.5 per cent drop of passengers despite the growth of 2.9 per cent in quarter one.
  • Traffic on domestic routes edged down by 0.4 per cent to 202, 112 travellers, the airline said.
  • The airline has hinged its growth plan on spreading its reach to more African cities and increasing frequencies in exiting and lucrative routes on the continent.
Malawi now locks Kenya Airways out of Lilongwe route
http://www.businessdailyafrica.com/C...y/-/index.html

Quote:
Malawis Department of Civil Aviation stopped the airlines rights on Sunday following complaints from Air Malawi that KQ had terminated an agreement with the Malawian national carrier which gave it leeway to operate between the twin nations.

This means that while Kenya Airways can continue making stop-overs in Lusaka on its Lilongwe-Nairobi flight, it cannot pick passengers from Lusaka to Lilongwe and vice versa.

Kenya Airways reduces capacity on Mumbai route
http://www.eturbonews.com/32996/keny...y-mumbai-route

Quote:
Kenya Airways has confirmed that effective immediately 3 out of 10 flights current between Nairobi and Mumbai will be operated on B737-700 aircraft, leaving the remaining frequencies to be flown on a B767-300ER.

This reflects current demand and allows for the larger B767 to be redeployed on routes where greater capacity is required. The B737-700 is capable to fly nonstop between Nairobi and Mumbai.

The airline has also confirmed that starting in April the B767-300ER be substituted for a larger and more comfortable B777-200ER as the traditional travel season between the two countries of Kenya and India gathers pace again.
Kenya Airways gets reprieve from court over reinstatement order
http://www.eturbonews.com/33058/keny...tatement-order
Quote:
Information received from Nairobi indicates that the Industrial Court in a change of mind granted an application by Kenya Airways (KQ) to hold off the ordered reinstatement of over 400 staff who left the airline last year under a voluntary retirement scheme. In September last year, Kenya’s national airline, left with few choices, reduced staff cost on a serious scale, after the first half results came in with a sharp downturn of financial fortunes and a major half year loss.

When the Industrial Court ordered the airline to re-instate the nearly 450 staff of the almost 600 who left at the time, KQ opted to lodge an appeal at a court of higher instance to “prevent lasting financial damage and prevent a precedent which could be applied against any other company, too, in the future,” as a regular source close to the carrier commented a few weeks ago.

A different Industrial Court judge yesterday issued an order of stay of execution, until the appeal has been heard and ruled upon.

It is understood that the airline has also outsourced certain functions to keep rising costs under control.

In a related development it was also confirmed that Jambo Jet, Kenya Airways’ lower cost airline “baby,” did not launch as was often suggested in 2012, and no new date could be ascertained when, if at all, this launch will eventually take place.

KQs new E-Jet to boost African presence

Quote:
Kenya Airways has boosted its fleet with the latest arrival of a new Embraer E-190 jet as it expands with an eye on the lucrative African market.

It is the sixth out of ten fully owned E-190 jets that Kenya Airways expects to take delivery by mid this year. The new aircraft is suited for short regional routes, within the Africa continent, where the airline is keen on boosting its presence.

Registered 5Y FFF, the E190 has 96 seats, 12 in business and 84 economy class. With this addition Kenya Airways has 11 Embraer E190s currently flying in its livery.

Acquisition of the E-190 aircrafts is a step towards growing the airline network by route and frequency growth, and the E190 is ideal especially for new routes development, while increasing frequencies on existing routes, said Dr Titus Naikuni, the Kenya Airways Chief Executive Officer.

Africa is an important market for the airline, generating about half of its airlines total revenue. In addition to this, it has maintained resilience even as the airline goes through difficult times. According to the operating statistics for the second quarter of 2012, African routes are amongst those that recorded growth despite a general slump in the global economy that was triggered by the crisis in the Eurozone.

Under its 10-year strategic plan, Kenya Airways targets increasing its fleet to 119 by 2021; while growing the number of destinations to over 115 from the over 50 that it currently flies to.
In addition to the E-jets, Kenya Airways has also ordered nine Boeing 787 Dreamliners that are slated for delivery by 2014.

Kenya Airways launches daily flights to Bangkok, Guangzhou
Standard Digital
March 2013


Quote:
Kenya Airways will commence daily flights to Bangkok, Thailand and Guangzhou in China from April 1.

Making the announcement on Wednesday, KQ CEO Mr Titus Naikuni said China, which is a key emerging market globally, has been scouting for economic opportunities in Africa and the daily flights will facilitate movement of traders and their goods between these regions.

He added the daily service from Nairobi to Bangkok and Guangzhou would be convenient for passengers taking connecting flights to 48 different African destinations that the airline flies to.

“This daily service will contribute towards sustainable development in Africa by linking it to the rest of the world,” Naikuni said.

The airline has also introduced new direct flights between Hong Kong and Dubai, operating three times a week.

Kenya Airways prepares to launch Abu Dhabi flights in July
eTurbo News
March 2013


Quote:
Inaugural flight to depart Nairobi on July 1

Kenya Airways (KQ) has confirmed they will commence flights to Abu Dhabi, initially three times a week, using a two class B737-800NG. KQ 316 will be leaving at 1925 hours every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to reach Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates at 0105 hours local UAE time, before returning to Nairobi with an ETA at 0555 hours the next morning being Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Etihad, the national airline of Abu Dhabi, is presently flying daily between Abu Dhabi and Nairobi, using an Airbus A320. The inaugural flight will leave Nairobi on July 1 of this year.

The flights are part of a partnership agreement signed a few weeks ago between the two airline CEOs, Naikuni and Hogan, in which the two carriers agreed on a wide range of cooperation measures. This is likely to have come as a result of Etihad and major KQ shareholder KLM/Air France aligning themselves with codeshared flights between Amsterdam and Paris to Abu Dhabi, as well as other areas, thought to benefit the clients of both airlines with a wider range of flights.

The move is also seen as a strategic expansion and widening of Etihads network into Africa, where they are presently underrepresented but can now use the flights of Kenya Airways via Nairobi to reach literally any part of the continent. Before the end of next year The Pride of Africa will be flying to every political and commercial capital in Africa.

Etihad Expands Skyteam Links With Kenya Airways Code-Share Deal
Bloomberg
February 2013


Quote:
Etihad Airways PJSC, the third- largest Gulf carrier, struck a partnership with Kenya Airways (KNAL) that opens up destinations across Africa while bringing it closer to the Air France-KLM Group-led Skyteam alliance.

Etihad will place its flight code on Kenya Airways services to 27 cities beyond Nairobi, while the African carrier will gain access to 32 locations via its new ally’s base in Abu Dhabi. It will also add three weekly flights between the two hubs.

Etihad has built a network of 42 code-share agreements and what Chief Executive Officer James Hogan calls an “equity alliance” that’s seen it take stakes in Air Berlin Plc, Aer Lingus Group Plc, Virgin Australia Holdings Ltd. and Air Seychelles Ltd. Kenya Air, sub-Saharan Africa’s third-biggest carrier, is a member of Skyteam and almost 27 percent owned by Air France-KLM, with which Etihad secured an alliance on Oct. 8.

“As part of the agreement we are looking for greater collaboration and coordination on cargo operations, training and procurement opportunities which will make us more cost efficient and customer responsive,” Kenya Air Chief Executive Officer Titus Naikuni said in a statement today.

Nairobi to Blantyre Flights to commence by Kenya Airways
http://www.eturbonews.com/34614/nair...-kenya-airways

Quote:
In breaking news was it just confirmed to this correspondent that Kenya Airways has been granted fresh approval by the Malawi government to commence flights between Nairobi and Blantyre, effective 03rd of June this year.

At the same time was Kenya Airways also granted 5th freedom rights to once again operate services with full traffic rights, for cargo and passengers, between Lilongwe and Lusaka in Zambia.

Since Malawi presently has no operating national airline, Kenya Airways will fulfill the need of the business communities in Malawi and Zambia, when the flights to Lusaka resume, which were halted several months ago over disputes on commercial agreements.

I love Kenya Airways. They have become a really reputable airline in the world since the 80's and 90's and probably one of the best in Africa, even passing the legacy carrier South African Airways of South Africa. Thank you for sharing these pictures, love the B777 and E170.
