Kenya Airways board and the top management future hangs in the balance in a drastic plan meant to return the national airline on the path to profitability.
The government is preparing a “turnaround plan” aimed at making the carrier that has been in the red over the last three years return to profit. National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Mr. Henry Rotich yesterday told a senate committee that the plan was at an advanced stage.


Mr. Rotich said the turnaround plan would address the issue of ticket pricing with a view to attract more customers. The government, a major shareholder in the airline, will also review the long running agreement with Dutch airline, KLM.
The restructuring, the Cabinet Secretary said, will also address investment flaws and decisions, adding that the government was seeking the support of other key stakeholders in preparing the review plan of the national carrier which is dubbed the “Pride of Africa”.
The senate select committee inquiring into the troubles gripping the national carrier is chaired by Kisumu Senator Professor Peter Anyang Nyong’o at Parliament buildings.
