KQ jets get new liveries promoting destination Kenya

Kenya Airways (KQ) has entered into a partnership with the Kenya Tourism Board to promote Kenya as a tourist destination across the globe.

The national carrier has branded  two of its aircrafts with liveries of Kenya’s most iconic species creating visibility as a must visit destination across the airline’s network of 41 destinations.

The imagery features the last two northern white rhinos in the world at Ol Pejeta Conservancy, the elephant Tuskers and lions from Amboseli National Park and the Tsavo National Park.

Tourism and Wildlife Chief Administrative Secretary (CAS) Joseph Boinett said the collaboration would build a strong brand association between Magical Kenya and Kenya Airways and thus increase the destination’s appeal to more consumers in all the market segments.

It is especially important at this point in time as we work towards recovering tourism fully and attracting international visitors to Magical Kenya.”
