Kenya Airways signs a first-of-its-kind service deal with Boeing

The agreement comes ahead of the inaugural Nairobi-New York flight in October.

The Consumable & Expendable Services will provide parts and services to Kenya Airways’ Boeing fleet of fourteen 737s and eight 787 Dreamliners, which will be serving a new non-stop route from Nairobi to New York beginning in October 2018.

“This program will provide unparalleled support for our fleet of 737s and 787-8s and we expect to continue to grow our operations with increased reliability and quicker turnaround times,” said Jan de Vegt, Chief Operating Officer of Kenya Airways.

Kenya Airways will be the first carrier in Africa to use Boeing’s Consumable & Expendable Services offering which will help the airline improve airplane reliability and turnaround times.

Comprehensive solution

Boeing Senior Vice President of Commercial Sales & Marketing Ihssane Mounir has said the program provides the most economical and comprehensive solution for Kenya Airways by tapping into Boeing’s resources and global presence.

“With this program, Kenya Airways can rely on Boeing’s resources and global presence and focus on their core business of serving their passengers.”

The agreement covers more than 18,700 spare parts during a five-year implementation period with additional parts to be added in phases.
