Kenya Airways releases its operating results for the second quarter ended 30th Sep 2011.
The company put into the market place capacity totalling 3,639m seat kilometres which was 7.3% better than last year’s level as a result of incremental destinations launched in the second half of 2010 to Rome (Italy), Nampula (Mozambique) and Malindi (Kenya) while N’Djamena (Chad) and Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) were launched in the first half of 2011.
Capacity offered into Europe registered an 8.6% growth compared to the same quarter of prior year as a result of introducing direct flights to Rome and operating double daily weekend flights on London route. The capacity into Middle East, Far East and India regions grew by 9.7% compared to last year. Bombay registered the highest growth in these regions at 26.4% due to the deployment of B777 in July and August 2011 compared to B767 operated in prior year.
