KQ receives new aircraft


According to eTurboNews, Kenya Airways recently received its second B777-300ER aircraft, joining the sister plane which a few months ago was put into service to Guangzhou, China, after being named Masai Mara by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Both aircraft are configured in a two-class cabin layout with 400 seats across Premier and Economy class. Unlike other new aircraft joining the airline, this particular B777 has been leased from GECAS on a long-term basis and will be deployed on flights to the Far East from June onwards.

KQ is still due to receive a further five Boeing B787-8 Dreamliners this year.
