The airline’s flights KQ 410-EBB, KQ 482-DAR, KQ 760–JNB and KQ 762–JNB departing to Entebbe, Dar es Salaam, and Johannesburg respectively return to Unit 1, after they were relocated to unit 2 following a dawn fire that destroyed a section of the airport two months ago.

Kenya Airways’ Chief Operating Officer, Mbuvi Ngunze, said that the relocation of the airline’s operations and changes in the check-in counters for the four flights were expected to balance the distribution of passengers at unit 1 and 2 to ensure good coordination and optimization of its resources.
“This directive is an attempt to improve the quality of services and facilities for passengers. Changes in check-in counters for these flights are aimed at helping us to better serve our customers by ensuring greater convenience and comfort,” Mbuvi added.
Currently unit 2 handles all international departures while unit 3 handles the domestic departures and arrivals.
All international arrivals are at the JKIA Parking Garage, which has been converted into a temporary arrival terminal.
