Apr 29, 2017: Kenya Airways has recently launched a Cargo Express Centre for premium cargo at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The Cargo express centre is aimed to improve KQ cargo revenue as part of the turnaround strategy, Operation Pride while catering for premium cargo clients needing express services.

The state of the art facility will ensure Kenya Airways Cargo customers get efficient and quick service targeting major courier and e-commerce players.

It will be a one-stop shop for airlines and freight forwarders to enhance efficiency in e-commerce logistics, electronic customer's clearance and cargo handling services, mail handling and airport ground handling service.

Mbuvi Ngunze, CEO and MD, Kenya Airways, said, "This Center is equivalent of the First Class lounge that our passenger guests enjoy. This Centre is one of the many initiatives under our turnaround strategy to find new revenue sources. We are optimistic this Centre will generate revenue of over Ksh 200 million for the airline from the expanded product portfolio, savings as we move our operations here as well as rental revenue."

The new centre will provide a wide range of specialised products, tailor made to meet client's needs such as express diplomatic packages, pharmaceuticals and valuable handling which will also help attract more clients for the airline.
