Kenyan health workers will now benefit from a 50 per cent waiver on ticket prices in the event they intend to use Kenya Airways for their travelling solutions. However, the offer is only valid for one month.
Kenya Airways (KQ) on Tuesday said the move is meant to honour the front-line health workers who are our hope in battling the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We celebrate our medical heroes with an exclusive offer. Healthcare workers can book tickets by 30th Sep 20 and get up to 50% off in Business and Economy class to 20+ destinations,” the airline said in a statement.
The national carrier said the move is meant to honour the front-line health workers involved in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic that had claimed 572 lives. Over 30,000 had been infected by August 31.
All the healthworkers will need to redeem the offer is their Job Card.
Frontline health workers have been among the 572 to die from coronavirus in Kenya since the first case was detected in March. They include a 32-year-old nurse who succumbed to the disease two weeks after giving birth to her child.
As of Tuesday, 34,315 people had been infected by the disease in the country.
