Kenya Airways is a Kenyan aviation company first incorporated in 1977 as a wholly owned entity by the Government of Kenya following the collapse of East African Airways. The company was privatized first in 1995 when 26% of the shares of the company were sold to KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and then in 1996 involving an initial public offering of the company's shares in the biggest share offering in Kenya's history, which was oversubscribed by 82%.

Kenya Airway's shares have attained "blue chip" status on the Nairobi Stock Exchange owing to, among other factors, a high level of corporate disclosure, earnings growth, and the share's relatively high liquidity. The decision to cross list the airline's shares on the Uganda Securities Exchange was made as part of the company's strategy to be a major player in Africa.

Kenya Airways is listed on the Uganda Securities Exchange (USE) since March 28th, 2002. Kenya Airways is traded on the USE under the ticker symbol “KA”. The International Securities Identification Number (ISIN) of USE:KA is KE0009081084. Kenya Airways is currently the eighth most valuable stock on the USE with a market capitalization of UGX 626 billion, which makes about 3% of the Uganda Securities Exchange equity market.
