Kenya Airways has appointed Total Air Logistics Limited to sell passenger tickets and cargo space in Lagos, Nigeria.
The move to outsource operations in Nigeria is set to face some resistance, however, as aviation unions are said to be planning to picket against the staff redundancies that have occurred as a result. According to a Nigerian news outlet, Kenya Airways has let go of the bulk of its Nigerian workforce, this coming at a time when the airline was negotiating terms of service with the union representing the employees.
KQ has been operating in the Nigerian market for two decades. It operates ten weekly flights to Nigeria’s Murtala Muhammed International Airport from Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
