KQ says 10 pilots had reached retirement age

19 March 2015, 11:22 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - Kenya Airways has denied media reports that it plans to sack 10 pilots, saying they were all set for retirement.

According to reports, KQ was planning to sack the 10 pilots to cut on costs, a claim that the company denied in a press statement issued on Wednesday.

“The 10 pilots were all set to retire in the near term and the notice letters were issued as part of the reduction in the B777-200 fleet announced in November last year and in accordance with the Collective Bargaining Agreement signed between KALPA and Kenya Airways, which allows for retirement in such a manner,” KQ’s statement read in part.

The company said the senior pilots, all between ages of 62 and 65 have been employed by the airline for some several decades and are expected to retire with full benefits.

According to the statement, the company is in continuous engagement with the Kenya Airline Local Pilots Association (KALPA) in regards to the possible fall out following issuance of early retirement notices to the 10 pilots.

“Kenya Airways remains keen finding a speedy resolution on this matter and will continue to nurture a mutually beneficial relationship with the union,” the statement added.
