Kenya Airways moves selected regional flights handling back to Unit 1

KQ is set to move some of its regional flights back to unit 1 of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi with effect from Wedsday, 4 December 2013.

The airline’s flight KQ 410-EBB, KQ 482.-DAR, KQ 760 –JNB and KQ 762 –JNB departing to Entebbe, Dar es Salaam, and Johannesburg  respectively return to Unit 1, after they were relocated to  unit 2 following a dawn fire that destroyed a section of the airport two months ago.

Kenya Airways’ Chief Operating Officer, Mbuvi Ngunze, said that the relocation of the airlines’ operations and changes in the check-in counters for the four flights were expected to balance the distribution of passengers at unit 1 and 2 to ensure good coordination and optimization of  its resources.

Currently Unit two handles all the international departures with Unit 3 handling the domestic departures and arrivals.

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