KQ moves domestic flights back to Unit 3


Kenya Airways is set to move all its domestic flights to Unit 3 of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi tomorrow.

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. (See story here

Unit 3 was being used for departures by KQ for its regional flights, as well as for Precision Air passengers. At the same time, all KQ 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.

Within the country, Kenya Airways flies to Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu and Malindi. These domestic operations generated 6% 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.
