Kenya Airways (KQ) has this week begun producing protective masks from unused materials from its stores.
The airline is targeting to produce over 1000 masks with a team of four, each working six hours shifts and producing 80 masks per day.
This initiative is in support of the Governments efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
KQ Group Managing Director and CEO, Allan Kilavuka through a statement said the masks will be given to staff and their families as well as different communities.
“Working with our different partners, we will identify the areas where the masks will be most needed to ensure we meet that gap,” said Kilavuka.
This initiative is part of the innovative sustainability solutions that involve the repurposing and recycling of items to extend their useful life not only for the benefit of the airline but also for the greater good of the society.
