(+) AIRLINE HAS 600 ENGINEERS DESPITE MASS STAFF EXIT
The Kenya Airways has about 600 engineers despite the recent mass resignations that have left the technical department struggling, CEO Mbuvi Ngunze has said. Speaking after presiding over the airline’s annual general meeting, Mbuvi said it is facing high staff attrition following massive poaching by Middle East airlines. “It is a matter of concern and the board is aware of it. We are looking at initiatives to retain people,” he said. Noting that the airline is a prime source of experts due to the extensive training of its staff, Mbuvi said KQ has enough engineers and safety standards.
