Kenya Airways Ŕ la prima compagnia aerea africana ad aver ricevuto un Boeing B.737-700 dotato di alette (winglets) alle estremitÓ alari. Il vettore basato a Nairobi, che ha ordinato di recente anche alcuni B.767 e B.777, utilizza una flotta quasi tutta formata di aerei Boeing e copre una rete di collegamenti passeggeri e merci attraverso l'Africa.

A Boeing 737-700 with winglets was delivered this month to Kenya Airways, a Nairobi based carrier now operating an almost all Boeing fleet, with newly ordered B.767 and B.777. The airplane, one of three models ordered by the airline, will serve a network of passenger and cargo services to destinations throughout Africa. Kenya Airways became the first airline in Africa to operate a 737-700 with blended winglets.
