Kenya Airways Stops Flights for the First Time in Four Decades

This decision to halt passenger flights, for the first time in 40 years, by the national flag carrier has been brought about by an announcement by most governments to shut down airports so as to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The cash-strapped airline is considered one of the biggest airlines in Africa, and flies to several destinations in Africa, Asia and Europe, including Amsterdam and London and New York.
