Kenya Airways will now only fly domestic routes as it moves to adhere to the international flights ban imposed by the government on Sunday in its efforts to curb the coronavirus spread.
The airline’s chief executive officer Allan Kilavuka said all international services will be suspended effective midnight March 25, until further notice.
“We will continue to operate cargo flights particularly so that we are available to offer emergency services or much needed supplies. In the meantime, our domestic flights to Mombasa and Kisumu remain operational,” said Mr Kilavuka.
The national carrier said it is assisting passengers returning home given the increased travel restrictions across the world.
“We also recognise that these sudden changes have greatly inconvenienced many of our customers and we would like to apologise sincerely for this but hope that we will come back stronger than ever in due course. Customers affected by the suspension will be able to change their bookings for later travel or exchange their booking for vouchers for future travel within 12 months,” he said.
