Kenya Airways has been named Africa’s Leading Airline for 2016 at the World Travel Awards gala ceremony that was held in Zanzibar, Tanzania. Kenya’s flag carrier beat other nominees including Egypt Air, Royal Air Maroc, South African Airways and Tunisair to win the coveted trophy voted by customers.
The company was founded in 1977, after the dissolution of East African Airways. The carrier’s head office is located in Embakasi, Nairobi, with its hub at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where they are flying to more than 60 destinations with their fleet of 45 aircrafts.
The awards came barely a week after the airline’s Simba Lounge and Pride Lounge at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport were rated the second best after that at Taipei, Taiwan, by SkyTeam passengers in a recent survey.
