Kenya Airways announced on thursday (19th September) the suspension of his flights to two countries. The decision will take effect from october, said the statement.
From 14 october 2019, Kenya Airways will no longer be flying on Cotonou and Libreville. This decision is motivated by the loss of a large amount of money in the first half of the current year. According to the press release, during the reporting period, the company lost 8.56 billion shillings (49 billion CFA francs). This is double financial losses recorded last year in Cotonou. After eight years of experience, the company has been serving Benin since 2011, and has been temporarily suspended
The Kenyan carrier, after a 06-year suspension, relaunched flights to Libreville on 29 october 2018. A year later, the financial losses are enormous. That’s why he’s suspending the line again. However, customers who have already made reservations will be served. Partner companies will take over as the company optimizes his network to better serve his customers while adapting to the ever-changing market demand.
