Singapore Airlines Cargo recently
launched a once-weekly service to Nairobi the capital city of Kenya.
The new service will
boost the growing freight business links between Kenya and Singapore. Kenya is a growing trading partner with countries in the South East
Asian region. Bilateral trade has been steadily increasing for some years and includes Information Technology & Telecommunications
equipment, pharmaceuticals and electronics on the import side and flowers and agricultural produce on the export side.
“We look forward to serving the people of Kenya by providing trade links not only between our two countries but also between South East Asia,
South West Pacific and other key markets,” said Mr Zainul Aljunied, Vice President for the Middle East, North Africa, Pakistan and Turkey.
The Honourable Amb. Chirau Ali Mwakwere, the Kenyan Minister for Transport,
said, “The entry of Singapore Airlines in the cargo transport business between Kenya and Singapore and Europe will greatly boost the import and export
business between the East African region and the Far East as well as with Europe. Kenya’s agriculture, livestock and fishing industries will be
direct beneficiaries of this initiative while on the other hand Singapore’s flourishing industrial sector will tremendously gain from links”
