KQ Pilots: Kenya Airways pilots have said that the national carrier will still make losses even if the pilots fly the planes for flew.

In a report that was published in The Star Newspaper, the KQ pilots lashed out at the airline’s management blaming them for the massive losses the airline has experienced over the past few years. Here’s the report:

The Kenya Airlines Pilots Association (Kalpa) on Tuesday said Kenya Airways would still have reported losses even if pilots gave their services for free.

Kenya Airways management last week blamed the current CBA for allowing pilots to call in sick without proof, leading to numerous cancellations, and high salaries paid to the pilots for its financial woes.

“Kenya Airways should stop looking for scapegoats in pilots. Should pilots offer services for free, it would still declare losses,” Kalpa general secretary Nyagah Murithi said.

The association also blamed the ariline’s management for increasing frequencies without having the right crew size.

This has contributed to frequent flight cancellations.

They now want the government to address the pilot and crew shortage at the airline.

Meanwhile, Kalpa says it supports nationalisation of the airline if it will save carrier.

“If you are going to nationalise, it should not be tied down like other state corporations,” Nyagah said.
