5th Update: Resumption of Limited Kenya Airways’ Flights


We would like to inform our customers and stakeholders that we will have a limited domestic operation today . The first flight out of Nairobi to Mombasa is expected to depart at 7.00pm. Another flight out of Mombasa to Nairobi will depart at 9.15 pm.


Please note that full operations at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) are yet to resume.


All affected customers will however be advised accordingly and should be at the airport two hours before departure time. The domestic departure terminal is in use and will be open to handle these flights.


We also wish to advise that these flights will only be operated for the domestic customers traveling between Nairobi and Mombasa and those who were on transit either to Mombasa from international flights, and to Nairobi for flights diverted to Mombasa. Priority for the Nairobi-Mombasa sector will be given first to international transit passengers.


Please bear with us as we try and restore all operations and streamline our service delivery.

The flight schedule for above is as below:-
