Kenya Airways has suspended all international passenger flights starting Wednesday.

In a statement yesterday, KQ Managing Director and CEO Allan Kilavuka said cargo flights will, however, remain operational to offer emergency services and supplies. He added that domestic flights from Mombasa to Kisumu will remain operational.

The company has been forced to reduce its network by over 70%, which has made it difficult to continue offering international flights.

Customers affected by the suspension of flights have been advised that they will be able to change their bookings for later travel or exchange their booking for vouchers for future travel within 12 months

On Saturday, Kenya Airways announced that staff salaries would be temporarily trimmed following the coronavirus pandemic that hit the company’s bottom line.

The management said all staff members would see a downward revision of their monthly salaries by at least 50 percent.
The CEO is to take a pay cut of 80% and this will be reviewed monthly.
