Kenya Airways Cargo Volumes Drop Due To Covid

Covid 19 has presented quite a difficult time for various industries and companies since the first wave. Now as the globe tackles the third wave in some parts of the globe, it has become evident that as much as some may have found opportunity in crisis, there are still some companies that have been hard hit. Globeflight Kenya has been working tirelessly to ensure your goods are available to you in good time, however some factors in this new market come into play on occasion.

An example right now, is Kenya Airways ( KQ ), according to Business Daily, the volumes of cargo they transport have reduced by 27.6 per cent by the end of 2020 in comparison to the end of 2019.

During this stretch of time, their main source of income, passenger travel, diminished considerably as did many other industries due to travel restrictions.


Total income dipped by 58.9 per cent to Sh52.8 billion underlining the impact of a sharp fall in passenger numbers as countries restricted movement to contain the spread of Covid-19.

They began to focus on cargo, though they did not remove seats to accommodate more freight and this created further restrictions on their ability to handle their deliveries as the move could only see the carrier ferry close to 50 percent of goods.

Globeflight Kenya maintains a multitude of efficient global flight and freight forwarding networks that allow us to be flexible with the change in times, ensuring client satisfaction is met at every step of the way.
