The is a bright future of more people flying for leisure and business after witnessing the growing confidence of travellers in Kenya and across the globe.

Bluebird Aviation General Manager, Captain Hussein Mohammed said confidence is growing among travellers despite the ravaging covid-19 pandemic.

“That confidence is improving albeit slowly and laboriously, but eventually we will be there, Initially I had thought that by the end of this year, that improvement would have increased significantly, but with what is going on in places like India, and low vaccination numbers in our country and limited availability and accessibility of vaccines has impacted on the growing confidence to fly again,” said Captain Mohammed.

The African Airlines Association (AFRAA) report indicates that African airlines lost $10.21 (about Sh1.1 trillion) in passenger revenue in 2020 when the travel industry was severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.


The number of scheduled passengers carried by African airlines fell by 63.7 per cent from 95 million in 2019 to 34.7 million in 2020.

“It will take about the end of 2022 for most travellers to regain the confidence to fly again and when a larger population would have gotten at least the first dose of the vaccines which is protective enough and 100 per cent against hospitalisation and at least 90 per cent against the severe form of COVID-19. But you need to get the second dose to feel fully protected,” said Captain Mohammed.
