The Labour Court has ordered Kenya Airways to immediately reinstatement of 157 engineers and technicians sacked over a strike.
Judge Hellen Wasilwa on Monday cited safety concerns of travellers on flights that have not been serviced.
The case will be heard on Wednesday.
Last week, Kenya Airways advertised engineer and technician positions a day after 140 employees were sacked for going on strike.
The technical staff were dismissed after they downed their tools over pay.
Among those dismissed are employees in charge of base and line maintenance, technical workshops, cabin and in-flight entertainment, multi-crew cooperation and technical assistance.
