A year after Kenya Airways Douala, Cameroon crash, Kenya Airways is again being forced to defend its air safety record. On that flight, all passengers on board died. Kenya Airways other major crash was January in 2000 a plane with 169 passengers crash-landed into the sea on take-off.

Kenya Airways has had 135 incidents between January and March of this year. Incidents include “passengers falling sick on the plane, a tear on the carpet or even a bird flying into the plane.”

The Airline’s IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) was renewed in October 2007 and is valid for a period of two years. Out of 193 African carriers, 20 are certified.

The probe of the Douala, Cameroon crash is ongoing.
