Trip Report Update on Resumption of Business at JKIA by Kenya Tourism Board

Jump to last reply

Following last week's fire incident at Jomo Kenyatta Airport (JKIA) that caused the disruption of business, the Kenya government and the private sector has continued to put in place measures aimed at ensuring resumption of business at the airport.

The current update towards this end is as follows:

Air Navigation Services
The ruling Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) classifies JKIA as now open for all passenger operations. International operations have fully resumed as of August, 11th, 2013 with the airport handling 19, 919 passengers on 11th August, 2013 against a usual average of 16,000 passengers in a day. 67 international arrivals and 70 international departures operated on the same day. All international airlines operating from JKIA have resumed operations with SN Brussels having been the last to resume operations. Swiss Airlines which was previously landing once a week has resumed it’s twice - a - week schedule.

Cargo aircraft operations
Cargo aircraft operating time has been revised from 9:00pm to 6:00am strictly. This is to avoid congestion. Cargo aircraft requiring only crew change and fuel (e.g. Lufthansa) has been advised to use Moi Airport Mombasa in the interim.

Passenger Operations:
All arriving international passengers are being cleared at full operational tents which are also hosting essential services like Port Health, Immigration, baggage collection area, Customs and screening machines. Exit of passengers is via Unit 3 Arrivals.

Back logs in the hotels are expected to clear by end of day. There are buses provided to passengers to facilitate the transfer of transit passengers to the domestic terminal. Most airlines are now using bigger aircrafts to alleviate the pressure of backlog of inward bound passengers outside the country (Dubai, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Cairo, West Africa, etc.).

Safety of passengers
Passenger screening areas are functional for ease of transfer of passengers. All other security checks in the airport are in place as usual. Enhanced signage in key areas is in place to assist passengers locate the various areas.

We shall continue giving you more update as we receive.
