Kenya Airways Moves Domestic Flights Back To Unit 3

October 4, 2013 Aviation No Comments Email Email

National carrier, Kenya Airways, is set to move all its domestic flights to Unit 3 of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi with effect from Friday, 4 October 2013.

The airline’s domestic departures and arrivals return to Unit 3, after they were relocated to the Cargo Terminal in August after a dawn fire destroyed a section of the airport.

Unit 3 was until recently being used for departures by Kenya Airways for its regional flights as well as Precision Air. At the same time, all Kenya Airways international flights as well as operations of its partner/customer airlines are now consolidated at Unit 2, following refurbishment of additional departure lounges at the terminal.

Speaking on the latest developments at JKIA, Kenya Airways’ Chief Operating Officer, Mbuvi Ngunze, said that the move will ensure greater convenience and comfort for passengers.

“We wish to thank the Kenya Airports Authority and the Government of Kenya for their efforts to restore airport facilities following the fire incident. We also appreciate our customers’ patience and understanding during this period, and reiterate our commitment to consistently improve our service offering to them,” Mr Ngunze added.

Within the country, Kenya Airways flies to Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu and Malindi. These domestic operations generated six per cent of the airline’s total turnover, according to Kenya Airways’ annual report for the year ended 31 March 2013.

All international arrivals are at the JKIA Parking Garage, which has been converted into a temporary arrival terminal.
