Kenya Airways Cargo wins prestigious global award

Posted 29 April 2013 · Add Comment

Kenya Airways' Cargo Division has won the prestigious Air Cargo News global service award.

Worldwide readers of Air Cargo News, the cargo industry’s leading publication, have voted Kenya Airways top in service excellence in moving cargo to and from the busy and increasingly competitive Africa region.

It is the first time that Kenya Airways has featured in the line-up of Cargo Airline of the Year winners, which are listed in full in the next issue of Air Cargo News and on aircargonews.net.

“All of this year’s winners have had to contend with a shrinking marketplace – and increasing regulatory pressures – whilst continuing to bravely invest in game-changing business strategies,” said Air Cargo News’ managing director and editor, Nigel Tomkins. “Winning an accolade from customers under such difficult circumstances is particularly rewarding. It is very pleasing to see an Africa-based carrier collect this significant accolade," he added.

 Receiving the award on behalf of Kenya Airways, Katrina Hanson, regional cargo manager Europe and America, commented: “We are thrilled to be recognised by Air Cargo News, the industry’s leading publication. Winning an award that has been voted for by our customers is the ultimate honour.

“It has been an exciting year for Kenya Airways Cargo; we have launched our new freighter and plan to increase our cargo volumes world-wide. Africa is a growing market and Kenya Airways will be the cargo airline of choice for the region.”

Kenya Airways marketing director, Chris Diaz, said winning the award was a great motivation to the airline’s growing cargo business. “This positions us really well as a strong global brand and we thank our customers for the confidence they have shown in our service quality,” said Diaz. 

The Air Cargo News Cargo Airline of the Year event – now 30 years old – is the longest-established and most cherished worldwide air cargo awards process of its kind and always attracts huge interest. Readers of the globally-circulated newspaper vote online for their best airline cargo service providers – and there are awards, too, for freight forwarders and GSAs, handling companies and airports.
