KQ India Flights: Kenya Airways has announced that it will not stop flights to and from India despite the shocking surge in Covid-19 deaths and infections. The national carrier in a statement said that the India route was critical in the transportation of medical equipment and drugs into Kenya.
“Passengers are only accepted on KQ flights upon presenting a valid Covid-19 test result certificate,” said KQ in the statement. The national carrier said that India remained one of its most important destinations.
“Since the resumption of domestic flights on July 15, 2020, we have been monitoring the adherence to the protocols, and I am pleased that they are being enforced and followed strictly,” a report that appeared in The Standard quoted KQ Group Chief Executive Allan Kilavuka saying.
The continuation of KQ India flights comes as infections and deaths continued to break records in a country of 1.35 billion people. In India, amid probably the world’s gravest current outbreak, oxygen has become one of the scarcest commodities. On Wednesday, the Indian Health Ministry reported 3,293 deaths from the virus, taking the country’s toll to more than 200,000 since the pandemic began, and 357,000 new infections, breaking the global one-day record it set just days ago.
