Kenya Airways (KQ) is offering free one-way tickets to Kenyans in the United States amid the COVID-19 pandemic that has had airlines grounded across the globe.

In a statement, KQ said that it would be their last flight after the government announced that all international flights would be suspended effective Wednesday midnight 25 March.

“As our last flight departs JFK today, we are offering one-way complimentary tickets to Nairobi, to Kenyan citizens in urgent need,” said KQ.

The airline added that “all passengers will be subjected to entry/screening procedures instituted by the Ministry of Health.”

On Sunday, KQ announced that they will suspend all international flights and only cargo flights would be operational.

“We will continue to operate cargo flights particularly to offer emergency services and much-needed supplies,” said KQ.
