NAIROBI 28th November 2016: Kenya Airports Authority would like to inform the general public that flight operations at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport have normalized following Sunday evening’s airport runway closure.

KAA’s management is assessing yesterday’s incident in order to draw lessons on how to improve our airport emergency, response and recovery procedures to minimize inconveniences should such incidents occur in the future.
