Kenya Airways has scooped the Business Airline of the Year prize at this year’s Africa Investor Tourism Investor Awards.
Judges praised the airline’s efficiency and effectiveness during the awards ceremony, which was held in the Zimbabwean capital Harare.
The awards are organised in an attempt to highlight Africa’s offerings as a tourist destination and reward organisations playing a role in the growth of the continent’s travel sector.
Titus Naikuni, Kenya Airways’ group managing director, said he is "proud" that the carrier’s "warm, caring, friendly African service" had been recognised.
"This award is testimony to the exemplary service and differentiated experience that we offer our customers," he commented.
More than 350 guests attended the awards ceremony, with judges presiding over 12 different award categories.
Kenya Airways announced in September that its punctuality figures had reached a four year high of 86 percent.
If punctuality is measured by International Air Travel Association standards, which defines on-time as within 15 minutes of scheduled departure time, this figure climbs to 95 percent.
