The terminal is three storey, and includes an aircraft parking area that can handle 21 aircraft; a car park for 1,500 cars (now being used as a temporary international arrivals terminal) and outdoor surface parking for 400 cars.

 The departures and arrivals sections of terminal 1A are clearly demarcated, a boost to security. Currently, only departures operate from the terminal, whilst the arrivals section is expected to come into use as from March 2015.

The terminal houses airport police offices and there is reassuring Police presence at designated points throughout the terminal and the airport at large. A high standard of security is enforced through thorough security screening for all users, using state of the art security screening equipment.

These developments further strengthen JKIA’s position as the regional hub. Terminal 1A will be used exclusively by Kenya Airways and its partner airlines.
