Kenya Airways will take delivery of its first Boeing 787-8 in October 2013, according to Managing Director Titus Naikuni. That is three years later than originally planned when the airline placed the order in 2006. In spite of the late delivery, Kenya Airways plans to add seven new destinations to its network this year and seven more in 2012. Kenya Airways is competing with Ethiopian Airlines for intra-African and long-haul connecting traffic. Ethiopian has ordered 10 787-8s.
