Kenya Airways (KQ) has given a notice to the Kenya Airline Pilots Association informing the pilots of the possible lay off in the new restructuring plan.
The national airline stated the COVID-19 pandemic has affected its activities and the travel industry would require up to even 3 years to get back to normal.
In the notice, Kenya Airways CEO, Allan Kilavuka stated the decision had been met following a review of the airline’s operations in May 2020.
“We did an extensive internal review of operations in May 2020 and are inevitably forced to carry out an organisation-wide restructuring. This will culminate with among other things, a reduction in our network, among our assets as well as our staff,” said Allan.
He further explained the exercise was for the larger operations of the organisation and not pilots alone.
“Therefore, we write to inform you that following a thorough review, the Kenya Airways board has proved the decision to carry out redundancy across the company network. This therefore, is a formal notification that we will be commencing redundancy process across the business,” part of the notice read.
