KAA commences 12-month JKIA renovation project estimated to cost Sh963mn

NAIROBI, Kenya, Jan 8– Kenya Airports Authority (KCAA) says it has embarked on a renovation project to upgrade the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport’s Terminal 1B and C.

In a statement, the Authority says the move is part of its commitment to position JKIA as the preferred regional aviation hub.

The 12-month airport development project which is estimated to cost Sh 963million aims to refurbish the departure halls to improve the check-in, security screening, retail operations as well as passenger lounge experience.

Once completed, the newly renovated light-filled departure terminals will deliver modern concessions and amenities that will give travelers a friendly and memorable experience.

It will also ease passenger flow and increase efficiency due to the centralization of security screening procedures and the reallocation of available floor spaces to international departure gates.

“There refurbishment and facelift of the T1B & 1C aim to align the passenger experience in these terminals to match what is offered at T1A,” said KAA Acting Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Alex Gitari.

“The remodeling project is an integral part of the ongoing JKIACustomer Service Improvement Plan (CSIP) which was formulated from feedback from our stakeholders and customers,” he added.

To expedite the implementation of this project, Airlines that have been operating from Terminal1B and 1C are being temporarily relocated to Terminal 1A and Terminal 2.

To minimize inconveniences, passengers are requested to arrive at the airport at least 4hours before their flight departures.
