Kenya Airways recorded slower growth in total passengers carried in its third financial quarter, affected by lower traffic in Europe and flagging performance on African routes, it said yesterday. The airline, 26 percent owned by Air France-KLM and 29.8 percent by the government, is among the largest carriers in sub-Saharan Africa. It said that passenger numbers rose 3.6 percent to 991 149 in the three months from October to December, compared with a 15.4 percent jump in its third quarter in 2011. – Reuters
