Kenya Airways (KQ) acting CEO Allan Kilavuka has been confirmed as Group Managing Director and Chief Executive officer of the airline.

Kilavuka’s appointment takes effect as of  April 1, 2020 as he takes over from Sebastian Mikosz whose term expired in December last year.

Prior to his appointment, Kilavuka was the CEO of Kenya Airways’ subsidiary, Jambojet.

“It is particularly gratifying to me that the Board agreed to support the appointment of Allan to the full role of substantive CEO. During his short time as acting CEO of KQ, Allan has thrown all his energy into this role, whilst still maintaining his position of CEO of Jambojet,” KQ Chairman Michael Joseph said.
