Kenya Airways is set to resume normal flight operations as from Saturday, November 12th 2022 after the Nairobi Employment and Labour Relations Court judge Anna Mwaure ordered that the pilots end the strike.
The striking KQ pilots were ordered to resume work as negotiations between their association and Kenya Airways continues.
KQ pilots had been on a strike since Saturday, November 5, which ended on Tuesday.
The pilots had been summoned to court after KQ commenced contempt of court proceedings against 11 officials of the Kenya Airlines Pilots Association for disobeying an order that stopped the industrial action.
Mwaure directed that the airline allows the pilots to perform their duties without harassment or intimidation, especially by not taking any disciplinary action against any of them pending the hearing and determination of the matter.
“The respondent’s members and especially the Kenya Airways pilots resume their duties as pilots at 6 am on November 9, 2022, unconditionally,” the judge said.
“Dear Customer, we look forward to welcoming you back on board with normal flight operations resuming by the 12th of November 2022,” the airline said.
