Kenya Airways’ (KQ) net loss is likely to sink further after suspending passenger flights between Kenya and the UK effective April 9, 2021.

A statement shared to newsrooms has noted that the suspension is a result of the government of Kenya suspending flights from the UK.

“Due to the increased demand for travel to the UK before the advisory takes effect on 9th April, we have added 2 new flights on 7th and 8th April 2021.” Read part of the statement.

Recently, KQ posted a Ksh36.2 billion (about $330 million) loss, the worst ever in the history of the airline, on account of Covid-19 disruptions that led to a sharp decline in passenger numbers.
