Kenya

Kenyan capacity up 10% this summer; Gulf Air resumes Bahrain flights, Kenya Airways reaches Ouagadougou

Located on Africas east coast, Kenya is roughly the same size as mainland France and has an estimated population of just over 40 million. Famous for its tea, coffee, flowers and athletes, tourism plays a key role in the countrys economy thanks to the many national parks, game reserves and beaches along the Indian Ocean.

According to OAG data, Kenya has 19 airports with scheduled flights, although 14 of these only offer domestic destinations. Nairobis Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) is the dominant airport in the country, accounting for over 70% of all seat capacity. According to data published by the Kenya Airports Authority, the airport handled almost 5.5 million passengers last year, up 8% versus 2009. Over 80% of the airports traffic is on international services. The countrys second-busiest airport at Mombasa saw passenger numbers rise by 14% last year to almost 1.3 million. The recent resumption of Gulf Air services from Bahrain means that 38 airlines now serve Kenyas main airport. Analysis of OAG data for July 2010 and July 2011 shows that seat capacity at JKIA is up 9% this summer, while the number of movements is up 13%.



Eight carriers compete in domestic market

Kenyas domestic air travel market features eight separate airlines offering scheduled services. The biggest in terms of weekly seats is Kenya Airways, which only operates three domestic routes from JKIA, but this includes up to 11 daily flights to Mombasa.


Fly540 offers less seat capacity but operates 20 domestic routes and more than twice as many domestic flights. It offers up to five flights per day between Nairobi and Mombasa. In fact, over 40% of the countrys domestic seat capacity is allocated to this one route between the countrys two most important cities.

Fourth and fifth ranked Airkenya and Safarilink Aviation both operate from Nairobis Wilson Airport, which is just five kilometres from the city but has a relatively short runway.

Tanzania, UAE and UK are leading country markets

Kenyas airports (mostly Nairobi) offer non-stop scheduled flights to 45 countries according to latest OAG data. Leading the way by some distance in terms of weekly seat capacity is neighbouring Tanzania, which generates over 150 weekly departing flights, not just from Nairobi but also Mombasa, Wilson and Kisumu.


Brussels Airlines, KLM and Swiss present; but not Air France or Lufthansa
Apart from the UK and Netherlands (Kenya Airways and fellow SkyTeam member KLM both serve Amsterdam daily) there are also daily non-stop European flights to Istanbul with Turkish Airlines, while Swiss offers six weekly flights from Zurich. Kenya Airways operates four weekly flights to Paris CDG and last December began operating three weekly flights to Rome Fiumicino. Brussels Airlines operates three weekly flights from Brussels, while the only German services are provided by Condor from Frankfurt to Mombasa. Lufthansa only operates cargo flights to Kenya.

Kenya

This story was reported earlier this month before JKIA's incident, but the call to get the airport expanded is growing louder and louder...

Quote:

Growing List Of Airlines Want To Fly Into Nairobi: Kenya needs to speed up airport work


Under pressure by air operators, in particular the national airline, Kenya Airways, and faced with a growing list of airlines wanting to fly into Nairobi, were it not for capacity constraints, the government finally made its stand known on the ongoing expansion of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Transport was quoted to have said: "We cannot wait until December next year. Measures must be taken to hasten completion of the project."

Much of the current delay in the expansion works are attributed to wrangles under the past CEO of the Kenya Airport Authority, which set board members against each other and the board against the Chief Executive, in the process leading to allegations upon allegations over improprieties and subsequent delays in advertising and awarding tenders.

This left airlines upset and angry, as their passengers have to squeeze during peak hours – now lasting for much of the day – in overcrowded terminals and faced with often long queues at security checkpoints, at immigration, and when collecting baggage. Kenya Airways, in fact, presently on a massive expansion drive with adding more aircraft to their fleet and expanding their network at a rapid pace, seems the main victim of Kenya Airports Authority's (KAA) failure to add aircraft parking spaces, a new terminal, and a second runway. Kenya Airways repeatedly, in the past, complained that competitors, in particular Ethiopian Airlines, are enjoying better facilities and facilitation in their own home hub of Addis Ababa, to the detriment of cementing Nairobi’s superior position as the leading East African aviation hub.

Kenya Airways is expecting to have 3 additional Embraer 190AR aircraft delivered between now and early 2012, following which 10 more such aircraft are under order and a further 10 under option. Nine Boeing 787 will also start arriving in Kenya from 2013 onwards, besides options for a further 4 of those long-haul planes. International airlines are either planning to add more frequencies to their Nairobi route, while others intend to start flights to Kenya, but the availability of slots during rush hour and the absence of a second runway in Nairobi has impacted negatively on potential growth, in the process also capping tourism growth numbers due to lack of capacity.

Eritrean Airlines Restarts Service

Eritrean Airlines relaunched flights between Asmara and Dubai International last weekend after taking delivery of an Airbus A320 on lease. The aircraft joins a single Boeing 767 in the carrier’s fleet and has enabled regional flights to once more be offered from the Eritrean capital to destinations in Africa and the Middle East. The airline is offering four flights every week between Asmara – Dubai with flights continuing on to the Pakistani city of Lahore.

“It’s a significant development for the airline as well as for the thousands of passengers whose travel for business and leisure will now be more comfortable, quicker and economical,” said Arif Uddin Qadri, UAE Country Manager, Eritrean Airlines. “The resumption of flights to Dubai will further bolster bilateral relations between the two countries and bring immense benefit to the economies.”

The African carrier’s revised schedule will also include services to Cairo, Jeddah, Khartoum and Rome, the latter the airline’s only link to Europe. These flights will all be operated using the recently acquired A320, which is configured with a ten-seat Business Class cabin alongside 126 Economy seats. However, the airline’s single 767 is still scheduled to operate a weekly Asmara – Khartoum rotation.

Schedule:

Asmara – Cairo – Rome
B8360 ASM1340 – 1520CAI1620 – 1810FCO 320 36
B8361 FCO1910 – 2300CAI2359 – 0340+1ASM 320 36

EBB l Entebbe International Airport (Uganda)

Quote:
Entebbe International cleared as an A380 emergency landing airport

The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) over the weekend released information that the airport was cleared by an inspection panel of Emirates, Dubais award-winning airline, to serve as an emergency landing airport, following successful "simulations" being carried out.

It is understood that the airline was seeking landing site options for emergency diversions which might occur in flight. A source at the CAA added that the airport was cleared, however, with the restriction that upon landing the two outer engines need to be shut down for taxiing as the width of runway and taxiway was not yet expanded to the size an A380 would under normal circumstances require to taxi under all four engines running.

Entebbe is due for another major expansion in coming years, which will include added apron spaces for aircraft to be parked, the eventual relocation of the cargo center to the "old airport" side, and the doubling in size of the passenger terminal to cater to the anticipated growth in air traffic.

Rwanda: Seeking Investor for $635m International Airport

Rwanda is looking for an investor to fund the construction of Bugesera International Airport.

Minister of infrastructure, Vincent Karega was qouted by local newspaper The New Times saying that the search for partners has began.

Karega said a detailed study and preparation of Bill of Quantities for the next phase of construction will begin when the government identifies a financier.

'It will happen - if all preliminaries (including mobilising of finance and importing equipment) are closed by the end 2011, then from 2012, up to 2015, or 2016, we shall have the airport,' said Karega.

The airport will be located in southeastern Rwanda, in Bugesera District and will be Rwanda's largest International Airport when complete, serving commercial flights destined to and from the greater Kigali metropolitan area. It will also be Rwanda's third international airport and the country's eighth.

Bugesera airport will cost US$635-million and is expected expected to handle 1 million passengers per year.

Landing, parking fees help JKIA revenue rise 26pc in three years

source: Daily Nation
Quote:
Revenue collection has increased at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport by about 26 per cent in the past three years.

The revenue at the facility has shot up from Sh5 billion in 2009/2010 to Sh6 billion in the 2010/2011 financial year.


The figures are pegged on a July to July financial year basis. In 2008/2009, revenue stood at Sh4.7 billion.

In a report released to the media, Kenya Airports Authority managing director Stephen Gichuki said aeronautical revenue, which is usually landing and parking fees due to aircraft increase, had risen from about Sh3.8 billion in 2009/2010 to Sh4.7 billion in 2010/2011. In 2008/2009, it was Sh3.6 billion.


Mr Gichuki said the jump in revenue was due to an increase in passengers using JKIA by about 30 per cent.


Passengers have increased by about 568,577 from 5.4 million in 2009/2010 to six million in 2010/2011.


He said the increase has necessitated the authority to scale-up the upgrading of the airport to target about 9.2 million passengers by the end of next year.

Mr Gichuki said passengers have been increasing significantly since 2008, when the number stood at 4.7 million. It then shot up by about 326,807 to five million in 2009.

The growth of passengers also saw an increase of aeroplanes movement in the facility, from 76,273 in 2007/2008 to 80,195 in 2008/2009. This year, the figure has risen to 96,071 from last years 87,337.

The increase in aeronautical revenue, which comes from aircrafts navigation, landing and parking fees, has resulted in the increased revenue, nececiating an upgrade of JKIA, Mr Gichuki said.

Mr Gichuki said KAA has had to relocate some duty free shops and create 2,400 seating spaces for passengers.

We had to act fast to reduce congestion at the airport by doing away with duty free shops which had blocked some gates to the boarding area, he said.

He said they have been collecting an average of Sh1 billion from non-aeronautical revenue, which includes rent and parking.

Vision 2030 chairman James Mwangi said they wanted KAA to increase its passengers to 20 million by 2020 and 37 million by 2030.

He said more than eight airlines wanted to operate in the facility by the end of the year.

JKIA-based cargo firms expand warehouses

source: BusinessDailyAfrica
Quote:
Cargo firms operating from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport are expanding their warehouses to meet growing demand for space occasioned by a boom in fresh flower exports.

The export of fresh flowers has been growing at 20 per cent per year, according to the Kenya Flower Council. The growth is forecast to accelerate as exporters contract more small scale farmers to grow flowers. Previously, the venture was exclusive for commercial farmers.

We started operating this new facility seven months ago, but we are now planning to expand because demand for space is very high, said Swissport Kenya CEO Jeroen de Clercq. Swissport Kenyas is one of the five cargo handling facilities at JKIA.

After completing a Sh1 billion expansion project in January, the firms facility has capacity to handle 70,000 tonnes of cargo. Demand for space, especially because of fresh produce exports, is increasing, he said. Another cargo handler Signon Freight is putting up a Sh900 million cargo handling centre that will be completed next year. The centre will include a perishable produce handling facility, said company MD Meshack Kipturgo.

Growing status

Because of the airports growing status as the largest fresh produce handler in Africa, we have invested in an international cargo handling centre, said Mr Kipturgo. Another cargo facility, Trans Global Cargo, is expected to open its expanded facility soon, airport officials said.

Cargo handled at JKIA has been growing at a rate of 12 per cent per year, although there was a dip in 2009 and last year partly because of the volcanic ash caused by eruptions in Iceland.

Cargo volumes grew from 203,000 tonnes to 300,000 tonnes in 2008. They dipped in 2009 and 2010 to 263,000 tonnes and 229,000 tonnes respectively, but are expected to rise to 252,000 tonnes this year, according to the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) Handbook 2011-12.

KAA forecast that by 2015, cargo volumes handled at the airport will increase to 370,000 tonnes, and to 596,000 tonnes in 2020. Kenya has five cargo handling companies including Kenya Airfreight Handlers and Trans Global Cargo.

Yep it's KQ network. But don't worry, RwandAir will add new destinations in coming month. Nigeria will be added in 2012, if everything goes well.
