Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bird! It’s a plane! Is it Superman?

No, it's Kenya Airways preparing for the arrival later this week of their fifth B787-8 Dreamliner, now just one short of the delivery target of six such aircraft this calendar year. An initial order of nine Dreamliners will then be completed with 3 more joining the fast-growing fleet early next year before, and then speculation will kick in, as to when, rather than if, the pending options for additional purchases will be firmed up. The airline’s strategic plan shows that by the financial year 2020/21 some 26 B787-8 should be flying Kenya’s colors around the globe in addition to a further 6 B787-9, a larger model with more seats and more cargo uplift capacity, offering even better economics. The phasing out of the aged fleet of B767-300ERs, which has already begun, will further improve the airline’s bottom line as the new breed of aircraft offer some 20 percent savings on fuel but also added savings in terms of reduced maintenance cost compared to the B767s which are now way beyond their prime.

In spite of a generally challenging business environment, with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa only adding to the problems airlines in Africa presently have, it is expected that Kenya’s national airline will remain on course to roll out “Plan Mawingo” which over the next 7 years projects the fleet size to grow to 107 passenger aircraft in addition to several freighter aircraft. This development will go hand in hand with a significant increase in destinations to 115 in some 77 countries across all continents.

Together with the ongoing improvements at Kenya’s main airport, Jomo Kenyatta International in Nairobi, where the new Terminal 1A is progressively now handling more and more flights, initially all by Kenya Airways, and the construction of a temporary terminal, the immediate future expansion of Kenya Airways is catered for. When “Project Greenfield” is completed in 2018, with a second runway and a new mega terminal, Kenya’s aviation future as the main hub for East Africa is assured to remain a leader in not just the region but the African continent at large.

Our General Strategy

An important consistent trend about commercial aviation is that it is a fiercely competitive and highly volatile industry, in which fortunes shift continuously. As the drive towards a free, converging and global market gathers momentum, competition within the airline industry is expected to intensify. Increasingly, open skies are therefore likely to impact on yields, and extraordinary profits will increasingly be an exception.

Given this potentially turbulent environment, the key to survival in the industry lies in whether an airline is able to clearly anticipate the patterns of change coming, the underlying forces driving these changes, and above all the ability to align its strategies to respond to a changing business and aero-political environment. With this in mind, Kenya Airways is committed to investing in the development of world-class capacity in information gathering, analysis and interpretation so as to facilitate faster but correct business decision-making. This way, Kenya Airways hopes to enhance ability for rapid response to opportunities, threats and challenges in the market place.

In concrete terms, in the next 10 to 20 years, Kenya Airways aims to grow into a decidedly dominant carrier in Africa with notable presence in Asia, Europe and the Americas, while operating a modern fleet of 30 to 40 aircraft. Kenya Airways intends to forge strong partnerships and be a respected member of a global airline alliance.

Future Outlook
