Nairobi Airport fire

The short-term problems resulting from a major fire at Nairobi’s international terminal last week seem to be over.  British Airways resumed its services on Friday as have most foreign carriers. 

The Kenya Airports Authority, which runs the airport, is advising passengers to check before either leaving for the airport or taking an incoming flight.

Overseas services are currently operating out of the (old) domestic terminal whilst local flights are using the cargo facilities.

“The airport authority has put in place temporary facilities, however customers are likely to experience significant disruption on arrival and departure”, noted BA in a statement.

“Due to the disruption, passengers travelling to Nairobi with an onward flight must confirm with the carrier that this flight is still operating.  Any customers travelling without a confirmed onward flight do so at their own risk”.

BA added that passengers flying from Nairobi must arrive at least three hours before departure and warned that there would be no lounge facilities available. www.kaa.go.ke/airports/nairobi-jomo-kenyatta-intl-airport
