History of Kenya Airways

Kenya Airways was founded in 1977 after East African Airways dissolved. Until 1996 the airline was wholly owned by the government of Kenya. The privatization process was long and in the meantime the airline continued to grow, adding more routes to accommodate its passenger numbers. In 1995 KLM became a major shareholder in the airline while the rest of the company remained public.

In 2005 Kenya Airways was awarded African Airline of the Year for the fifth time in the previous seven years. Two years later the airline was welcomed into SkyTeam, the world's second largest airline alliance.
