Statement by Statehouse Spokesperson on Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Fire in Nairobi
We have been in contact with our Kenya office since very early this morning. We have both travelers currently in Kenya and travelers en-route. Those currently in the country are safe and accounted for and on safari. The first departure from Kenya is in about 48 hours. Those en route to Kenya are in transit and have been provided hotels by the airlines or by our 24 hour White Glove Service® assistance team.
The hotels and camps are working with us to push the arrival dates back and move the reservations accordingly. Terminals 2 and 3 are being prepared for international arrivals as both have immigration facilities. We are expecting for international arrivals to resume by Friday. Land transfers into Kenya from Tanzania are not affected except for increased security. Domestic flights from Wilson Airport are carrying on while domestic flights from JKIA are expected to resume later today along with cargo flights.
