Kenya Airways has chosen Boeing Co. for the supply of new aircraft, the airline’s publicity agent said on Wednesday.

Kenya Airways Chief Executive Titus Naikuni said last year that Boeing’s decision to delay delivery of nine Dreamliner planes, would slow down expansion for the airline, partly owned by Air France-KLM.

The airline had been mulling purchase of A330 planes from Airbus, he said then.

The airline’s publicity agents said on Wednesday: “National flag carrier (Kenya Airways) has settled on Boeing Corporation as the supplier of its new aircraft. Dr Titus Naikuni and Boeing Africa Sales Director Rob Faye will tomorrow brief the media as they sign the purchase agreement.”
