Kenya Airways Cargo Launches Direct Flights to Sharjah

To commemorate Kenya Airways Cargo's (KQ Cargo) recent route expansion to include direct cargo flights from Sharjah, Sharjah Airport Authority (SAA) hosted a reception at Sharjah Airport. The addition of KQ Cargo to Sharjah Airport's operating cargo companies marks a significant milestone in the strategic vision of both organizations.

The reception was graced by HE Ali Salim Al Midfa, Chairman of Sharjah Airport Authority, Julliet Wambui Kabeu, Chargé D'affaires, Dubai, Allan Kilavuka, Group Managing Director & CEO of Kenya Airways, as well as key directors and representatives from both entities.

KQ Cargo will operate four direct weekly flights from Nairobi, Kenya, to Sharjah Airport, utilizing Boeing 737F cargo aircraft. This initiative is poised to strengthen trade relations between the United Arab Emirates and African countries, tapping into the significant demand for cargo services within the region.

Kenya Airways’ Group MD and CEO, Allan Kilavuka, stated “The United Arab Emirates is ranked among the top exports and imports trading partner for Kenya and other African countries. This trade constitutes around 10% of UAE's total trade. The launch of KQ cargo flights from Sharjah to African cities is therefore significant in tapping into this growing demand that will catalyse business growth within the Middle East and Africa. Our new Boeing 737-800 Freighters offers increased cargo capacity, a range of up to 7 hours out of Sharjah to destinations across Africa and is available for charters.”

HE Ali Salim Al Midfa on his part noted, “Sharjah Airport Authority is keen to develop the logistical aspect of the airport’s business and enhance cargo services for its clients, supported by a robust strategy designed to strengthen the airport’s position on the travel map.

We are proud of our extensive partnerships with international shipping companies that contribute to expanding the destinations available to customers, especially with the ongoing development of the shipping hub and our commitment to providing shipping services aligning with the highest approved standards.”

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
