The national airline of Kᴇɴʏᴀ is Kᴇɴʏᴀ Airways Ltd., also known simply as Kᴇɴʏᴀ Airways. In 1977, the business was established following the demise of East African Airways. Jomo Kᴇɴʏᴀtta International Airport serves as the organization’s hub, which is located in Embakasi, Nairobi.

After being held by the Kᴇɴʏᴀn government until April 1995, the airline was successfully privatized in 1996, making it the first African flag carrier to do so. At the moment, Kᴇɴʏᴀ Airways is a public-private partnership. The Government of Kᴇɴʏᴀ is the company’s largest shareholder (48.9%), with KQ Lenders Company 2017 Ltd. coming in second with a 38.1% interest. KLM is third with a 7.8% stake. Private owners hold the remaining shares, which are traded on the Uɢᴀɴᴅᴀ Securities Exchange, Nairobi Stock Exchange, and Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange.

In addition to being a member of the African Airlines Association since 1977 and SkyTeam since June 2010 is the airline.

We’re excited to visit the Pride of Africa again to film its newest pride, the Dreamliner, almost a decade after we first filmed Kᴇɴʏᴀ Airways’ Boeing 737 and 767! We’re excited that the airline put together an all-female crew for a roundtrip from Nairobi to Kinshasa, featuring the airline’s first female pilot and the first African wOᴍᴀɴ to fly the 787, with six 787s currently in the fleet and more on order! Along with numerous other pilots, we also board the thrilling Nairobi-Bangkok-Hᴏɴɢ Kᴏɴɢ route. They all take their time to thoroughly explain this new aircraft to you and go over each of the flights in detail.
