Kenya Airways completes move to Terminal 1A at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport


(Posted 11th February 2015)

Kenya Airways will tonight complete the move for all remaining flight departures from Terminal 1C, formerly known as Unit 2, to their new home in Terminal 1A.

While most flights had been progressively shifted to the new home of Kenya Airways and their SkyTeam partners, were departures from Nairobi to Central and West Africa still being processed from the old location. The shift tonight will bring flights to Douala, Lubumbashi, Brazzaville, Cotonou, Accra, Abidjan and Bamako under the same roof as all other Kenya Airways’ flights, apart from domestic departures.

Flights from Nairobi to Mombasa, Malindi and Kisumu continue, until the end of the month, to be processed in what used to be known as Unit 3, now renamed in to Terminal 1D, before moving to the new so called ‘Temporary Terminal’ which has been named as Terminal 2. This will facilitate the closure of Terminal 1D for expansion and modernization and shuttle busses will take passengers connecting from international and regional flights to the new check in facility.

Meanwhile though will now all international and regional passengers of Kenya Airways be able to experience the new spacious terminal. Premium passengers will have a dedicated terminal entrance and are then fast tracked through immigration and security check before enjoying the new Pride and Simba lounges which are presently the best on offer in Africa. Kenya Airways was just a few weeks ago joined in the new Terminal 1A by partner KLM which has also moved all flight departures to the new terminal. Other SkyTeam members which have their check in done by Kenya Airways, are now also departing from Terminal 1A. For added information on flight schedules or on line check in click on
