KQ upbeat despite terror

27 September 2013, 11:04

Nairobi - The country's leading air carrier is optimistic the recent terror attacks will not have an impact on the industry's and the company's growth.

“As an airline, we have contingencies and if the conditions become unmanageable, we can move to another airport. But, that is not very tenable in the long term.

Managing Director of Kenya Airways, Titus Naikuni, said.

Addressing the media, he reiterated that tragedies such as the JKIA fire and last week’s attack on Westgate should not be used to bar investors and tourists from visiting the country.

Naikuni assured passengers that the company's airlines were safe.

“What we have done, we have put in place closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the airport and covered our own areas,” he affirmed.

The company intends to expand its business to boost its future prospects in the industry.

The low-cost Jumbo jet is poised to ease the company’s courier burden marginally.

The official's concerns follows the terror attacks at the Westgate Mall.

More than 72 people have died.
