Chaotic Scenes At The Airport as Delay of Flights Experienced

Chaotic scenes at the Moi International Airport, Mombasa as flight delays experienced. This comes as the 14-day strike notice issued by airline pilots lapses tomorrow.

There have been ongoing Talks with Labour & Transport CSs, KALPA and KQ Management since 2 pm with no agreeable conclusion

Beginning on Saturday, there will be delays for flights taking off and landing at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) due to Kenya Airways (KQ) pilots' refusal to end a scheduled strike in defiance of a court order.

The Kenya Airline Pilots Association (Kalpa), which receives the majority of its members from Kenya Airways, has announced that it will disband because KQ management has been indifferent to its pilots' complaints.

According to a statement released by Kalpa general-secretary Murithi Nyaga on Friday, no Kenya Airways aircraft will leave JKIA starting on Saturday, November 5, 2022, at 6 a.m. local time.

The strike, which threatened to shut down KQ activities and impede its recovery from the consequences of travel restrictions that preceded the Covid-19 outbreak, was temporarily stopped by the Labour Court on Monday.

Kenya Airways had requested court orders to end the strike, citing the possibility of having to pay substantial fines for cancelling flights totaling over Sh300 million.

On October 19, Kalpa announced a 14-day strike with four justifications.

For covert governance and leadership difficulties, the airline's inability to execute pay agreements (CBA), the alleged victimisation of Kalpa members, and the failure to pay staff monthly pension payments, they want the board and management fired.
