Kenya Airways Pilots Association (KALPA) had issued a statement demanding suspension of KQ flights to Guangzhou citing health risks and KQ’s inadequate control measures such as spray-disinfecting the flight deck. Failure to comply would have led to withdrawal of pilots and cabin crew from the affected route.
However, the Kenya airways maintains that it will still run the Nairobi-Bangkok route.
