Recapitalization to Position Kenya Airways for Better Competition



Recapitalization will reposition Kenya Airways to thrive in a competitive and dynamic aviation landscape. This was disclosed by Mr. Allan Kilavuka, Kenya Airways Group MD and CEO, during the airline’s 48th Annual General Meeting held this morning.


The AGM, which was held virtually and attended by shareholders, was presided over by Board Chairman Mr. Michael Joseph, who presented a comprehensive review of the audited financial results and business performance for the year ended December 31, 2023. 


Mr. Allan Kilavuka, Group MD and CEO, emphasised Kenya Airways' commitment to building upon the achievements of its turnaround strategy, Project Kifaru, with a primary focus on completing the capital restructuring plan. The objectives of this plan include reducing the company’s financial leverage and enhancing liquidity to ensure normalised operations. 


“Through the retirement of legacy debts, strengthening of financial foundations, and pursuit of operational excellence, recapitalization will position Kenya Airways to thrive in a competitive and dynamic aviation landscape," said Kilavuka. 


He further stated, "Our key priorities also include enhancing customer experience and operational excellence, particularly improving our On-Time Performance. We aim to drive revenue growth by expanding operations, passenger charters, and partnerships, while remaining steadfast in fostering innovation, forging partnerships, and nurturing a culture of excellence for KQ’s sustainable success." 


During the meeting, shareholders approved all resolutions in accordance with the provisions of the company’s Articles of Association, the Companies Act, 2015, the Capital Markets Act, and its Regulations. This included the adoption of the audited financial statements, including the Balance Sheet for the year ended December 31, 2023, the Directors' and Auditors' Reports, and the Directors' Remuneration for the same period as outlined in the Annual Report and Financial Statements. 


Furthermore, shareholders passed resolutions concerning the election of Directors, including any retirements. 


According to Mr. Joseph, Kenya Airways (KQ) has made significant strides in its business operations throughout the year, reflecting in its improved financial performance. He noted that 2023 marked a pivotal moment for KQ.  


“The ongoing recovery and strategic turnaround initiatives have resulted in KQ achieving an operating profit of Ksh 10.5 billion. This milestone is particularly significant as it marks the first time in over seven years that the airline has attained such a level of financial success, signaling a positive trajectory for KQ's future,” said Joseph.

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

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
