Kenya Airways releases its operating results for the third quarter ended 31st Dec 2011.
The company put into the market place capacity totalling 3,560m seat kilometres which was 6.5% better than last year’s level as a result of increased frequencies to several destinations and the launch of Jeddah operations in the third quarter.
Capacity offered into Europe registered a 14.9% growth compared to the same quarter of prior year due to introduction of flights to Rome and double daily weekend flights to London. The capacity into Middle East, Far East and India regions remained at par compared to same period last year.
The Northern Africa region capacity grew marginally by 1.9% owing to the introduction of double dailies to Juba in Southern Sudan on the Embraer aircraft to meet the rising demand for business travellers. Capacity availed into the East African region shrunk by 14.2% compared to last year largely as a result of operating combined flights to Bujumbura and Kigali as opposed to direct flights evidenced last year.
