KQ announces new directors

Loss-making Kenya Airways has announced new directors. The two, Mr Jason Kapkirwok and Mr Dennis Awori will be expected to steer the airline back into profitability.

Mr Awori will now be serving a second term, having been a director at the carrier before.

The elections for their positions, overseen by PricewaterhouseCoopers, were conducted during the 39th annual general meeting last week.

NEW STRATEGY

KQ’s top management unveiled a new strategy to improve the national carriers prospects during the AGM.

The new corporate strategy involves reducing operational costs, improving worker performance and selling unnecessary aircraft as well as making price adjustments to attract new customers.

“We are working around the clock to successfully move from the perilous path we are on. Yes, it is difficult at this time but we see light at the end of the tunnel,” Kenya Airways CEO Mbuvi Ngunze told shareholders.
