According to the Kenya Airline Pilots Association, the pilots went on strike as their primary demands were not addressed, including the replacement of the Kenya Airways board owing to leadership issues, the execution of salary agreements, and the non-payment of monthly pension payments for employees.
Kenya Airways CEO Allan Kilavuka had given the pilots 24 hours to return to work and put an end to a strike that could lose millions of shillings in revenue for the country.
