Earlier in March, KQ announced a series of changes to its route network. These include increased frequency to London with daily flights, up from five weekly flights during the Covid-19 pandemic period.
Flights to Milan and Rome, which had been scheduled to return on June 8, 2022, have also been postponed. The deferral is due to decreasing passenger demand as a result of COVID-19 recovery taking longer than projected. KQ will continue to service Italy via its European destinations of London, Paris, and Amsterdam, with connections to ITA (Italia Trasporto Aereo) and Air France-KLM. In addition, the Yaoundé, Cameroon destination route is set to be suspended effective 31st May 2022.
Effective February 20, 2022, the Juba-Khartoum route started operating on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays to accommodate Sudan Weekends (Fridays and Saturdays). From February 15, 2022, the frequency of Nairobi-Kisumu flights were reduced from 26 to 17 times weekly during the low season.
