#KenyaAirways announces 9 flight pairs for 07th November as strike continues to strand thousands of passengers



(Posted 07th November 2022)


As KALPA members continue the strike against Kenya Airways – with both sides giving conflicting statements as to effecctiveness and root causes of the strike, has the airline announced that at least 9 flight pairs will operate today, 07th of November.

The threat by Kenya Airways to sack striking pilots has clearly had little effect on them as the large majority continue to refuse flying until their primary demands are met or meaningful negotiations are entered into by the airline’s management.

The following destinations will be served today, according to the airline’s statement:


KQ 400/01 from Nairobi to Addis Ababa and back

KQ 402/03 from Nairobi to Addis Ababa and back

KQ 420/21 from Nairobi to Entebbe and back

KQ 604/05 from Nairobi to Mombasa and back

KQ 606/07 from Nairobi to Mombasa and back

KQ 706 from Nairobi via Lusaka to Harare and back

KQ 761 from Nairobi to Johannesburg and back

KQ 100 from Nairobi to London


The airline has also yet to comment on the use of larger aircraft on the routes outlined, so as to more rapidly clear the backlog of stranded passengers, possible a sign that their staff are presently overwhelmed and perhaps consider media relations presently more of a nuisance than a partnership.
