Kenya Airways Embraer E190

Kenya Airways is the flag carrier airline of Kenya. The company was founded in 1977, after the dissolution of East African Airways. Its hub is located Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, one of Africa’s most important airport.

Kenya’s E190 operations is perhaps one of the most notable E190 operations in Africa, with 62% of its flights is operated by the E190.

The addition of the KQ E190 would also mean the completion of Kenya’s mainstream fleet in IF!

I just saw the 900th livery, it looks beautiful but I guess it’s considered as a special livery, so not accepted anymore maybe. I then wondered if someone would do a request for the basic livery, great that you did !

Update : oh they closed it…

Thanks for reminding me, I almost forgot 😅

Yeah it’s a shame that happened, I had to create one real fast. Hopefully we’ll reach beyond the original 19 votes!

Yeah and we said the other request was counting for the regular KQ one but OP couldn’t edit their topic. We need the 19 votes back.

As you very well should. This would open up a lot of destinations in southern and eastern Africa.

Insanely sad, there are 3 African operators of the E190 and at least one didn’t make it.

KQ operates 15 E190 ALL ACROSS AFRICA but well…

That would be news to us!

We’ve explained our livery selection process before countless times, and it’s not really fair at all to say we are going out of our way to exclude liveries from certain regions (especially considering this livery is actively being worked on by the artists, and just didn’t arrive in time for the first release)

That is amazing news ❤️

My surprise is that it coming somewhat late while the initial (now closed) topic for this aircraft was made back in August 2017
