APA Insurance on Wednesday presented Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) with a KSh1.4 billion compensation cheque, fully setting the claim from the August 7, 2013 fire at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

This brings the total compensation for the inferno by the insurer, which gutted the international arrivals terminal at JKIA, to KSh1.97 billion. In December 2013, APA presented to KAA an interim KSh500 million payout to facilitate the reconstruction of the new arrivals terminal at JKIA, East and Central Africa’s busiest airport.

Receiving the cheque, KAA Managing Director, Lucy Mbugua said the settlement was a big boost to reconstruction works at the airport. “The full settlement of our claim for the fire at JKIA will enable us to restore the facilities at the airport, which together with the ongoing expansion and modernization works, will stamp the position of the airport as the main gateway into the region,” Ms Mbugua added.
