Healthcare staff can now book tickets in the business and economy class for up to 50 percent off, Kenya Airways said.
The national carrier said the change would be to celebrate with an exclusive offer the medical heroes of Kenya.
The healthcare staff will be able to book tickets to over 20 destinations by Sep 30 2020.
To apply you must be a front-line health worker with a Health Worker ID that must be shown at the time of purchase and at check-in.
You should have an ID scan to be sent to the Mobile Transactions Contact Centre.
The airline indicated that it is allowing up to two free changes.
"Cancellations or refunds allowed free before departure, not allowed after departure," the airline said.
For eg, a Moi International flight from JKIA to Mombasa is Sh9,670 on economy class. If you're a health worker, you 're paying only Sh4,835.
The case Sh9,715, health workers will pay Sh4,857 from Kisumu to Nairobi.
This comes after Kenya Airways' net loss for the six-month period ending June 2020 increased by 67.3 per cent to Sh14.33 billion due to Covid-19 disruptions that led to flight grounding.
Last week, the national carrier said passenger numbers fell by 55.5 percent to 1.1 million, as opposed to 2.4 million during the same time last year, hurting revenues.
From July Kenya restarted its domestic and international flights.
This was following announcement by President Uhuru Kenyatta that domestic flights would resume on July 15 while international flights resume on August 1.
This will be in full accordance with all appropriate guidelines and protocols from both the Health Ministry and civil aviation authorities.
Uhuru stated that additional conditions must be met at the ports of departure, the arrival or transit.
In March, the government suspended all international flights in and out of the country.
