Kenya Airways cargo creeps up

LIMITED capacity has stunted Kenya Airways’ cargo growth, with the airline seeing a negligible 2.2 per cent rise on the previous year.

The company is looking for a freighter to lift volume growth, chief executive Titus Naikuni said.

Despite poor cargo figures the airline posted an 87 per cent surge in yearly pretax profit to 5 billion shillings (US$58.1 million).

“We are still bullish. We are looking at opening new routes meaning we have an opportunity to increase our revenues even further,” Naikuni commented.

The six routes to be opened this year include Abuja (Nigeria), Asmara (Eritrea) and Beirut (Lebanon).
