On Tuesday (April 2, 2024), Kenya Airways announced that they have taken delivery of their second Boeing 737-800 Freighter, expanding their dedicated freighter fleet to four aircraft.  The additional freighter will offer customers and partners more cargo capacity on the carrier’ global network, especially in the Middle East, Asia, and Africa.  Kenya Airways’ dedicated freighter fleet will capture emerging opportunities from The African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) to catalyze trade across the continent.

In Monday’s announcement, Kenya Airways Group’s Managing Director and CEO, Allan Kilavuka, said,

“We have made a commitment to gradually increase our cargo business and support our customers in their long-term needs and deliver possibilities in the air.  The arrival of the new B738 Freighter, the second one this year, and the fourth in our cargo fleet, is a significant milestone in KQ Cargo’s fleet expansion plans.  We are confident the additional cargo aircraft will allow us to further increase our capacity and significantly increase our frequencies as we propel Africa’s prosperity and connect its people, cultures and markets.” 

Kenya Airways Cargo will deploy the new Boeing 737-800F on routes to Sharjah and Dubai (UAE), Jeddah and Riyadh (Saudi Arabia), Dakar (Senegal), Lagos (Nigeria), Ndjamena (Chad), Mogadishu (Somalia), Mumbai (India), Free Town (Sierra Leone), and Monrovia (Liberia), among others.  The Boeing 737-800F has a cargo capacity of 20 tons and can fly up to seven hours nonstop.  Kenya Airways Cargo’s fleet now includes two 737-800Fs and two 737-300Fs.
