A Kenya Airways Boeing 777-200ER lands at Hong Kong International Airport in 2012.

Kenya Airways was established by the Government of Kenya on 22 January 1977, following the collapse of the East African Union and the consequent folding of East African Airways.[1] It first flew on 4 February 1977 servicing the London–Nairobi route, using a Boeing 707–321 leased from British Midland Airways.[1][2] A year later, the airline's network comprised five domestic and 16 international destinations.[3] As of July 1980 (1980-07), the airline served the international destinations of Addis Ababa, Athens, Bombay, Cairo, Copenhagen, Frankfurt, Jeddah, Kampala, Karachi, Khartoum, London, Lusaka, Mauritius, Mogadishu, Rome, Salisbury, Seychelles and Zurich and four Kenyan cities (Kisumu, Malindi, Mombasa and Mumias).[4]

In June 2012 (2012-06), the carrier announced the suspension of services to Rome and Muscat as part of cost-cutting measures following a 50% fall in profit for FY2011/12.[5][6] Abu Dhabi joined the route network in July 2013 (2013-07)[7][8] and Abuja was added in June 2014 (2014-06).[9][10] Delhi was terminated in November 2014 (2014-11).[11] In July 2016, the route to Livingstone, Zambia was extended to Cape Town, South Africa.[12] As at July 2016 (2016-07), Kenya Airways served 54 destinations, 44 of them in Africa.[13] The carrier intends to add new flights to Chongqing, Hyderabad, and Washington, D.C. in Fiscal Year 2017-18 and to Ahmedabad, Moscow and Xiamen in Fiscal Year 2018-19.[14]
