Chief Executive Officer Titus Naikuni said that the rationalization process will go on as planned.
Naikuni was speaking during a press conference at a Nairobi Hotel where he advocated the company’s position.
The airline defended the move citing a Ksh 1 billion annual saving from the cost cutting exercise.
The redundancies will predominantly affect ground staff whose roles will be outsourced.
The rationalization process is expected to go on despite a request by the Prime Minister asking the national carrier to stop the plan and explore other cost cutting and revenue accumulation ways.
