KQ suspends flights to West Africa

NAIROBI, July 30- Kenya Airways (KQ) has temporarily suspended flights to some of its West African destinations following a strike by ASECNA the trade union of air traffic controllers in Francophone Africa.

KQ CEO Titus Naikuni in a statement released Wednesday said the destinations that would be affected were Comoros and Mayotte, Abidjan, Bamako and Dakar.

ASECNA (Agence pour la Securite de la Navigation Aerienne en Afrique et Madagascar), which covers 25 international airports in Francophone West and Central Africa called the strike on July 29 to demand better pay and working conditions.

“We are monitoring the situation as it develops and we are hopeful that an amicable solution will be reached soon,” Naikuni said.

KQ has over the years maintained a firm focus on promoting air travel within Africa where it flies to over 30-African destinations.
