COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli has on Tuesday October 12, 2021 received a recognition from Kenya Airways as a Platinum Elite Life Time Member of KQ.
According to a statement by COTU, Atwoli's consistency as a customer of the leading Kenyan airline, prompted the gifting of the luxurious award. The airline stated that the trade unionist has flown with them for a period spanning more than 50 years.
"This recognition is a result of the patriotism to the National Airline considering Dr. Atwoli has been flying with KQ for close to 50 years," the statement read in part.
The airline further awarded the vocal worker's union leader a free business class return ticket to any destination of his choice.
"The KQ team, led by Evelyne Munyoki who is the Chief Human Resources Officer, thanked the Secretary General for the great partnership and as a result, gifted Dr. Atwoli with a free business class return ticket to any destination of his choice that is serviced by KQ," the statement added.
Atwoli thanked KQ for the recognition as he encouraged Kenyans to continue flying with the airline. He stated that KQ is not only the pride of Africa but also one of the best in the world.
