Kenya Airways PLC (KQ) has announced the suspension of passenger flights between Kenya and the United Kingdom (UK) effective 9th April 2021 at 00:00 HRS GMT until further notice.
According to the airline, the suspension is due to the directive issued by the Government of Kenya suspending all flights from the UK, effective midnight 9th April 2021.
“Due to the increased demand for travel to the UK before the advisory takes effect on 9th April, we have added 2 new flights on 7th and 8th April 2021. We sincerely apologise to all our customers for the inconvenience,” the airline stated.
Kenya Airways said “customers impacted by this directive may change their bookings for later travel or request a refund with all penalties waived,” emphasizing that “all tickets must be utilised before 31st March 2022.”
The airline also advised passengers to contact their travel agents or the airline’s website to manage their booking.
