KQ moves selected regional flights


Kenya Airways will move some of its regional flights back to Unit 1 of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi.

The airline’s flights KQ410-EBB, KQ482-DAR, KQ760-JNB and KQ762-JNB departing for Entebbe, Dar es Salaam and Johannesburg respectively return to Unit 1, after they were relocated to Unit 2 following a fire that destroyed a section of the airport two months ago (see story here).

Kenya Airways’ Chief Operating Officer, Mbuvi Ngunze, said that the relocation of the airline’s operations and changes in the check-in counters for the four flights were expected to balance the distribution of passengers at Units 1 and 2, to ensure good co-ordination and optimisation of its resources.

Currently, Unit 2 handles all international departures, while Unit 3 handles the domestic departures and arrivals.

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