During the meeting, shareholders approved all resolutions in accordance with the provisions of the company’s Articles of Association, the Companies Act, 2015, the Capital Markets Act, and its Regulations.

According to Mr. Joseph, Kenya Airways (KQ) has made significant strides in its business operations throughout the year, reflecting in its improved financial performance. He noted that 2023 marked a pivotal moment for KQ.

“The ongoing recovery and strategic turnaround initiatives have resulted in KQ achieving an operating profit of Ksh 10.5 billion. This milestone is particularly significant as it marks the first time in over seven years that the airline has attained such a level of financial success, signaling a positive trajectory for KQ’s future,” said Joseph.
