In 2015, Kenya Airways won Africa's leading Airline-Business Class in the World Travel Awards. In 2014, Kenya Airways receives its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft and second Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. 


Kenya Airways was a candidate for SkyTeam alliance in 2005. KLM sponsored the african airline along the way and in 2007, Kenya Airways became one of the first official Sky Team Associate Airlines. Later, in 2010, the airline became a full member of the alliance. Benefits, among others, are accesibility to the large number of members' network and passenger facilities.


In 2012, the company iniciated a huge expansion plan. Kenya Airways is set to expand to 24 new destinations by 2021. Among the new destinations the carrier will include are Sao Paulo, Toronto and Perth, as well as seven new destinations in China. In addition, Kenya Airways has purchased several aircrafts, including Boeings 777s and 787s. In November 2016, Kenya Airways announced enhanced cooperation with India's Jet Airways to codeshare on domestic flights within cities in India. The agreement will link Mumbai and New Delhi, Ahmedabad and Hyderabad, in order to enhance connectivity choices for guests traveling from Kenya in to India. Through this agreement, Kenya Airways will have its flight code (KQ) on Jet Airways' seven daily flights between Mumbai and New Delhi, five daily flights from Mumbai to Ahmedabad and five daily flights between Mumbai and Hyderabad for travel effective today. This, together with KQ's twice daily flights on the Nairobi - Mumbai route will allow Kenya Airways passengers greater access to these key Indian cities and onwards to other destinations in India. The arrangement also enables Jet Airways passengers to book codeshare tickets to Nairobi, and access the rest of Kenya Airways network across Africa. In May 2017, Kenya Airways announced it had introduced direct flights to Victoria Falls after launching its Nairobi - Victoria Falls - Cape Town route. The new route, which is being serviced by an Embraer E190 with a configuration of 12 business class seats and 84 economy class seats, is the airline's 52nd and it's second in Zimbabwe after the Nairobi-Harare route where it operates 21 flights weekly. Kenya Airways will service the new route three times a week on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. This will see the airline increasing its operations to Cape Town from four, which are serviced via Livingstone, to six.


In May 2017, Kenya Airways announced it is to undertake a capital restructure as it attempts to rebuild its business following a disastrous few years. One contributor to Kenya Airways financial improvements was a record 4.5 million passengers. Average passenger load factor increased 4% up to 72.3%, although Available Seat Kilometres (ASKs) decreased 4%. Overall operating costs were down slightly, but fleet rationalisation led to a reduction in fleet costs of 47.5%.

In November 2016, Kenya Airways and Vietnam Airlines announced it had renewed and expanded its codeshare agreement. The national carrier yesterday said the new agreement will allow it more access to South East Asia destinations, which took effect this November. The codeshare covers the Bangkok-Hanoi and Saigon, Nairobi–Hanoi, and Hanoi-Kuala Lumpur routes. In March 2017, Kenya Airways announced it was upbeat as it marked its 40th anniversary. New routes include a Victoria Falls to Cape Town flight from May 18, following increased demand for flights to Zimbabwe, which UK tour operators are likely to use as part of multi-centre itineraries. The airline is also working more closely with joint venture partner Air France-KLM on its airline ticketing and marketing activity with the trade, which makes up 90% of Kenya Airlines’ UK sales. In March 2017, Kenya Airways announced that flights from Nairobi to New York's JFK will be launched in early May. This is after Kenya Airways formally requested the US federal aviation department for a licence to fly directly to the US. Kenya Airways aircraft and its crew will be rated and reviewed before the licence is issued.

In March 2017, Kenya Airways announced it had entered into Boeing 737 sales-and-leaseback deal over two Boeing 737-700s. The remarketing division of Air Partner, the UK-based aviation services group, said March 10 it had arranged the sale of the aircraft to an undisclosed lessor. The two aircraft had then been leased back to Kenya Airways for continued operation. They were originally delivered new to Kenya Airways in 2002 and 2003 and are powered by CFM56-7B26 engines. The East African flag carrier has incurred heavy losses in recent years and has substantially slimmed down its fleet as it seeks to return to profitability.
