Passenger delays at JKIA


According to eTurboNews, airport security at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya, has been stepped up, with added perimeter gate vehicle checks.

Although police have been deployed to this post for several years, cars were only stopped periodically to check passengers and the contents of the boot.

It is believed that the Kenya Airport Authority will construct additional lanes to facilitate the screening of cars and people entering the main airport area, and while nothing has been said about providing roof cover in case of rain, that too is expected to be constructed in coming weeks.

Until ready though, passengers should brace themselves for added waiting time at the main gate before reaching their check-in gates at the terminal.
