JKIA runway closed due to air incident

The Jomo Kenyatta International Airport runway has been closed due to an aerial incident, the Kenya Airports Authority said.

KAA in a statement said all passengers on board the plane are safe.

“No injuries have been reported. The removal of the aircraft is underway,” the KAA said.

KAA apologized for the inconvenience caused and said an update on the same will be issued in due course.

When an airport runway is closed, flights may be delayed, diverted or cancelled, depending on the severity and duration of the closure.

Air traffic controllers are working to manage the situation and minimize disruption.

Expanding or adding additional runways requires significant land acquisition and infrastructure development.

JKIA handles a substantial amount of air traffic with efficient scheduling and management.
