Night-time closure for JKIA runway


According to eTNW, all passengers at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi (Kenya) have been advised to arrive at the airport four hours prior to departure while the runway undergoes developments which will see it close between midnight and 06h00 for one year, from 2 April.

Passengers are also advised to use taxis or be dropped off, to avoid leaving their cars at the airport, as this will lead to further congestion.

The closure is to pave the way for a major rehabilitation project that will include resurfacing the full runway, upgrading the Instrument Landing System and the runway capacity with the construction of rapid exit taxiways and extending the parallel taxiway. It forms part of KAA’s strategy to ensure that the airport operates at an optimum level for the next 15 years.
