WELCOME BACK!

Dear Traveller,

It’s great that you can fly again and visit friends and family, go on a business trip or take a relaxing holiday. Before you come to the airport, we would like to inform you about what to expect – whether your journey starts or ends with us, or whether the airport is a stopover. That way, you will be well prepared for your journey.

We at Kenya Airports Authority have taken precautions for you and your fellow travelers in order avert the spread of COVID-19; in this regard, we have mapped out the passenger journey at all our major airports and illustrated it on this Airport Passenger Journey Document  that you can download and go through before your next travel.
