Kenya Airways (KQ) on Saturday warned passengers of minimal disruptions on flight schedules after unionisable pilots withdrew goodwill working hours due to ongoing negotiations with management.

In a statement issued in Nairobi, the national carrier assured passengers that while the withdrawal of the goodwill may cause minimal disruptions it will continue to operate its flights. "Passengers affected by any cancelled or delayed service will be provided with hotel accommodation or endorsed to fly on another carrier," the statement said.

The pilots covered under the Kenya Airlines Pilot Association (KALPA) have done so with respect to the ongoing collective bargaining agreement (CBA) negotiations between the union and the KQ management.

Goodwill is being available for work during off hours within legal limits as approved by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).

Meanwhile, the union and management are in discussions with an aim of reaching an agreement on the CBA as soon as possible.
