Kenya Airways net loss for the year ended December 2018 has widened by 17.76 per cent to $77.36 million from $63.78 million in 2017
KQ management has however been quick to point out that the 2018 figures cannot be directly compared to 2017 since the former covers 12 months compared to the 9 month period covered in 2017 financial report.
“This, therefore, means that the 2018 results are not directly comparable with the 2017 results as it is a representative of 12 months against the 9 months in 2017,” Chairman Michael Joseph said.
Kenya Airways loss after tax was Sh5.9 billion losses for 2018 up from the Sh5.1 billion in 2017.
The management has attributed the loss to high fuel costs.
