South Africa Airways ‘monitoring’ Kenya Airport fire

Though it has yet to cancel any of its flights to Kenya, Africa’s leading carrier South African Airways (SAA) has said it is monitoring the situation at Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, where a huge fire gutted the arrival terminal early Wednesday.

The fire has led to an indefinite closure of East Africa’s busiest airport and the diversion of inbound flights to other airports.

SAA spokesman Tladi Tlali said there were currently no SAA aircraft flying to Nairobi.

The airline serves 20 destinations across Africa, and views Kenya as a key destination in its East Africa operations.

Late last year, SAA increased the number of flights between Johannesburg and Nairobi from seven to 10.
