I think any plans for B77L will have to be shelved if the 787-900 & 1000 program doesn't go up in a cloud of smoke.

the mighty KQ back to it's older self!!

Kenya Airways passenger numbers increased 10.9 per cent in its first quarter ended June as it races to recover from the biggest loss ever in the history of companies listed on the Nairobi bourse.

The national carrier said total passenger numbers rose to 932,912 in the three months to June compared to 841, 223 in the same period last year, helped by increased traffic on its domestic, Africa, Middle East and Far East routes.

This is a reversal from last year’s trend where a drop in passenger traffic saw revenues plunge by Sh9 billion to Sh98.8 billion and posted a loss of Sh7.86 billion in the year to March compared to a profit of Sh1.66 billion.

Management blamed the eurozone debt crisis, fears of unrest during Kenya’s March elections and a string of gun and grenade attacks — following Kenya’s foray into Somalia in pursuit of Al-Shabaab militants — for the losses.

The harsh market conditions appears to have eased as the carrier hauled 90,517 passengers on the European routes in the quarter compared to 89,852 last year, but the numbers are lower than the 108, 833 travellers recorded in 2011.

KQ said passenger traffic in the rest of Africa rose 9.4 per cent to 480,604, while those in the Middle and Far East were up 12.3 per cent at 139,275.

Domestic travellers rose 22.1 per cent mainly due to the airline’s move to re-enter Eldoret and the additional flights on the Kisumu route.

The KQ numbers are in line with the industry’s lobby, International Air Transport Association (IATA), which shows a rebound in Europe.

“June was a positive month for passenger markets. The stability in the Eurozone, albeit tentative, is giving a boost to business and consumer confidence,” said IATA’s director general Tony Tyler in a statement on Wednesday.

Tonnes of cargo hauled during the period fell four per cent, Kenya Airways said. Besides growing traffic, KQ’s management promised to cut costs to recover from the tough two years.

It has negotiated fleet maintenance contracts that will save it Sh5 billion over the next five years, together with modernisation of its fleet with more fuel-efficient Embraers and Boeing B-787 Dreamliner planes.

Citigroup projects the airline to post a net loss of Sh3.1 billion in the current financial year ending March 2014 on higher costs that will wipe out sales.

ROYAL AIR MAROC TO OFFER DIRECT FLIGHTS BETWEEN MOROCCO AND KENYA


Wed, 06/26/2013 - 16:54 david_bourne


Royal Air Maroc, the Moroccan national airline, will be starting direct flights between Nairobi and Casablanca following the signing of a trade agreement by the end of 2013.

This was announced by the Moroccan Minister of Industry and Trade, Abdelkader Amara, following the signing of a trade agreement between Kenya and Morocco in Nairobi on Monday.

The flights will be key to deepening trade between the two countries which is currently valued at Ksh 8 million per year. By reducing the time and cost of transportation between Kenya and Morocco, it is hoped that the value of this trade will increase.

At the same press conference, the Kenyan Foreign Affairs Secretary, Amina Mohamed, urged Moroccan firms to open offices in Kenya to take advantage of some of the benefits that East Africa's largest economy can provide.
Ms Mohamed said “the recent discovery of oil in northern Kenya points to a petro-dollar economy in the near future, a great leap forward that will underwrite Kenya’s position as the regional economic hub.”

What about frequencies, planes ?

The two countries have to first & foremost finalize reciprocating services between the two national carriers. Most countries will curtail BASA (Bilateral Air Services Agreement) unless their own airline benefits from the joint venture. Morocco receives a lot of European tourists that would love to add to their itinerary a stop in Kenya. Kenya Airways should in turn get some of that traffic. At this point, the agreement is almost finalized and it's just a matter of logistics. The frequencies will vary during the height of tourist arrivals for both countries. As far as equipment is concerned, Air Maroc will rely heavily on it's 737 fleet. Kenya Airways will on the other hand use some 737 & mostly E190's. At a later date, both airlines are in line to acquire 787's that will form the backbone of that route.

Moroccan airline plans direct flights to Nairobi

Direct flights will soon be introduced between Nairobi and Casablanca following the signing of a trade agreement between Kenya and Morocco.
The flights are seen as one way of deepening trade between the two countries which signed the agreement putting the plan on the radar in Nairobi Monday.

Kenyans currently travelling to Casablanca fly via Dubai or Europe owing to a missing link for direct flights.

Speaking at the signing, Morocco Minister of Industry and Trade Abdelkader Amara said Royal Air Maroc would introduce direct flights to Nairobi by the end of the year.

The flights are aimed at reducing the cost of transportation incurred when connecting to the destination. The volume of trade between the two countries fell 80 per cent to Sh8 million last year.

This was attributed to lack of structures to support trade. The countries are now betting on the new pact to strengthen links and boost trade.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Amina Mohamed speaking at the function asked a delegation of Moroccan investors to set up shop in Kenya which she said has a robust institutional framework to support commerce.

Ms Mohamed said the country was an economic hub in the region as a result of recent investment undertakings in ICT, energy, tourism and financial services sectors.

“The recent discovery of oil in northern Kenya points to a petro-dollar economy in the near future, a great leap forward that will underwrite Kenya’s position as the regional economic hub,” she said.

The delegation of 106 Moroccan investors that witnessed the signing of the deal was particularly keen on investing in the country’s energy, agriculture and pharmaceutical sectors. Its leader said investors would also be interested in partnering with the government to set up a fertiliser factory and tap into the wind energy sector.

Kenya is on a charm offensive to improve trade relations with countries in the North and West Africa in a bid to grow exports and reduce the current account deficit.

Kenya plans to increase the number of tourists through Morocco airline link



By EVELYN SITUMA

Posted Sunday, June 24 2012 at 17:17


Kenya is reviewing communication links with Morocco to increase the number of tourists from the Maghreb as traditional source markets come under pressure.

The two governments have identified having direct flights between Casablanca and Nairobi and commissioning of a Kenyan embassy in Morocco as key to sustainable tourism.

“Travelling from Morocco to Kenya takes one and a half days. We are trying to talk to the two national carriers KQ and Royal Air Maroc to join forces, but logistical problems have delayed the roll out,’ said Ali Bajaber, the honorary consul for Morocco in Nairobi.

Tourists travelling from Morocco to Kenya have connect flights in Dubai, Paris, Istanbul or Riyadh.

However, Kenya Airways could enter direct flight arrangement with Royal Air Maroc as soon as it acquires the 787 Dreamliner aircraft.

“We have talked to them and what we hear is that it may begin by 2013 or 2014,” Mr Bajabe said, adding that Royal Air had identified Nairobi as a key hub to reach East Africa and the islands of Seychelles and Madagascar.

Abdelilah Benryane, the ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco, said that opening a Kenyan consulate in Rabat would ease visa issuance.

Travel between the two countries has increased with around 20 visas being issued per month compared to one after every three months two years ago.
The two officials were speaking when a delegation of tourists from Morocco visited the Kenya Tourist Board (KTB) under an exchange programme recently. The delegation said Kenyan hotels were expensive.

“Kenya as a holiday destination is expensive. One week trip to Kenya, from a booking office abroad, in a shared room costs 9,000 euro which is way too expensive,” said Mr Bajabe. Tourists from Morocco to countries like Thailand and Malaysia stand at 30,000 annually.

Morocco boasts of 10 million tourists annually, up from four million in 2007.

The country boasts of a 3,500 kilometre coastline with historical and geographical attractions being key attractions.

KTB is focusing on Africa to increase the number of tourists with only 1.7 million having visited the country last year.

Tourism numbers from Kenya’s key source markets in Europe declined marginally to 312,258 in the first quarter of this year compared to 313,691 last year because of the Eurozone economic crisis and insecurity concerns in Kenya.

However, the Kenya Tourism Federation chief executive officer Agatha Juma sounded sceptical on the issue of a resort city, saying that private investors who were once excited about the idea were casting doubt on the success of the project.

“The vision remains a vision if the issue of land is not addressed. Except for the Isiolo resort city where we have been told that land has been dentified, the rest remains a mirage,” said Ms Juma.
