President William Ruto and Djibouti President Ismail Omar have deliberated on the issues and Kenya’s national carrier is set to resume flights to that country.

At the moment, details on ticket charges, the timing, and the frequency of the flight to Djibouti are undecided.

President Ruto did not specify why the route was a priority to the carrier that is currently expanding across the globe to boost its revenues.

When KQ resumed operations in August, Djibouti was among the eight African countries that KQ dropped.

The other routes included Malawi, Somalia, Sudan, Angola, Mali, the Republic of Congo, and Mozambique.

The airline suspended passenger operations in the international market in March 2020 due to the coronavirus.

The reopening of flights on the route is expected to be a major boost to KQ which recorded a ninth consecutive half-year loss, sinking Sh15 billion deeper into the negative equity position.
