“Kenya Airways has been impacted by the disruption on Mombasa Road, with some guests departing from JKIA in Kenya missing their flights,”

“Kenya Airways has been impacted by the disruption on Mombasa Road, with some guests departing from JKIA in Kenya missing their flights,” a statement released by Kenya Airways on Friday said.

“Our operations are running as scheduled. Any guest who will miss their flight will be re booked on the next one, at no fee. This applies to all guests traveling before 18h00, from JKIA, for tickets purchased on or prior to Friday, November 17, 2017.”

The youths were on their way to JKIA to welcome Raila Odinga on Friday from his tour of the US and Europe.
