Kenya Airways with new CEO – from Poland

At the beginning of June 2017, Sebastian Mikosz, former CEO of polish airways LOT, will be a CEO of Kenya Airways. He will replace the current chairman, Mbuvi Ngunze. The main task of Sebastian Mikosz will be to lead the Kenya Airways line with financial problems.

Kenya Airways is the largest Kenyan airline and the fourth largest African carrier. As reported by the Business Insider Polska, last year, Kenya Airways has serviced 4.2 million passengers. In comparison, LOT carried 5.5 million passengers during this period.

Kenya Airways was established in 1946 as a regional carrier that operated flights between Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania, with headquarters in Nairobi. Until 1995, the main shareholder of the line was the Government of Kenya. In 1996, the lines were privatized, but the majority was still owned by the Kenya Government (29.8%), another shareholder is KLM, which owns 26.73% of the shares (others are held by private investors). Kenya Airways shares are listed on the Nairobi Stock Exchange, Dar es Salaam (Tanzania) and Uganda.
