ABSTRACT
Kenya Airways was at a crossroads in 2006. A hunger for new markets prompted air carriers from the Middle East and Asia to expand aggressively into Africa. So Kenya Airways executives responded—putting in place an expansion plan of their own, designed to make the company the leader in intra-Africa air traffic by 2009. But the managers included an important stipulation—find a way to fuel growth without significantly expanding back-office operations, particularly in the finance, human resources, and supply chain management departments. The challenge for Kenya Airways was to consolidate heterogeneous systems within the organization. What the airline needed was a system platform that would provide integration for processes throughout the organization’s departmental systems.

This paper highlights a brief description of the company. It then proceeds to give a brief overview of what quality means for Kenya Airways as a company. Consequently, it illustrates how the company has effectively employed as information system platform to improve quality and efficiency. It concludes by giving a succinct summary why information systems are important for organizations today and a conclusion underscoring Kenya Airways as an innovative organization in the use of information systems.
