KAA announces Ksh.963 million JKIA revamp project

The Kenya Aviation Authority (KAA) has announced a Ksh.963 million rehabilitation project for the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) terminals 1B and 1C.

The one-year-long development project is aimed at refurbishing the departure halls to improve the check-in, security screening, retail operations, and passenger lounge experiences.

Once completed, the modernized terminals which currently serve international passengers on minor carriers at JKIA will allow easier passenger flow by increasing the efficiency of airport procedures.

“The refurbishment and facelift of the terminals aim to align the passenger experiences to match what is offered at terminal 1A. The remodelling project is an integral part of the ongoing JKIA Customer Service Improvement Plan (CSIP),” said Acting KAA Managing Director Alex Gitari.

Airlines operating on the terminals set for revamp will be temporary relocated to terminal 1A and terminal 2.

Passengers relocated temporarily on the alternative terminals will meanwhile be required to arrive at the airport four hours before departure.
