Kenya Airways has halted flights to Honk Kong and Hanoi as part of the airlines restructuring process.
In a statement to newsrooms yesterday, the airline said the decision to halt the flights to the two Far East cities will take effect from October 29, 2017 and is intended to optimise its route network.
The move according to the statement will allow KQ to allocate more seats across its African routes where the demand outlook remains strong and capacity insufficient on certain routes.
“This network decision will help Kenya Airways to strengthen its focus on Africa. We will continue to serve our customers to Asia through our direct flights to China and Thailand and work closely with our partners to cover the Asian continent” Kenya Airways Commercial Director, Vincent Coste is quoted saying in the statement.
But the airline will continue to serve Hong Kong and Hanoi through its partners. KQ is a member of SkyTeam Airlines Alliance through which it can fly to 1074 destinations.
