jkiaLast week, Transport Principal Secretary Irungu Nyakera went on an inspection tour of the new arrival facilities at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. This week, the Kenya Airports Authority held a successful simulation exercise of the new terminal in readiness for the official opening.

The new terminals (Terminal 1A and Terminal 1E) are scheduled to start operations in the next few weeks. They are part of the modernization effort at the region’s busiest airport, which gained steam following the 2013 inferno.

Once operational, the new arrivals terminal are expected to boost JKIA’s annual capacity allowing the airport to effectively handle it’s current passenger demand while significantly improving passenger experience.

Here are photos from the Thursday exercise held in conjunction with students from Kenya Utalii Collage.
