According to a July 2020 IATA Study, travellers are seeking ways to feel more comfortable about flying again. This has led to increased accountability for airlines to ensure passenger confidence.
Julius Thairu, Chief Commercial and Customer Officer at Kenya Airways say that Economy Max will meet the evolving needs of travellers during the pandemic by offering the ability to purchase an empty seat or row next to them.
“The world we live in has changed. As an airline, we continue to adapt to the evolving needs of our customers as we recover from the effects of the pandemic. Economy Max puts passengers in control of their experience and ensures that our customers have a choice as they enjoy their privacy with additional space to themselves. Economy Max is a continuation of KQ’S diversification and innovation to provide relevant products and services to our customers to improve the overall experience of their travels with us.” said Thairu.
