Kenya: JKIA upgrades expected to boost economyJomo Kenyatta International Airport car garage has opened to the public in what is expected to ease congestion and boost revenues.
The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) had in 2013 converted the car parking garage into a temporary arrivals section after a fire destroyed Terminal 1.
Security features at the garage have been fixed and works at arrival terminals 1A and IE now completed.
Major upgrades have been made at the JKIA since its international terminal was destroyed in a fire four years ago.
Operating direct flights between Kenya and the US is expected to cut by half freight costs in what could have a ripple effect on economic growth. Kenya exports mostly horticultural products to the US.
Kenya contributes more than 35 per cent share to the global flower trade that continues to grow despite stiff competition from Ecuador, Ethiopia and Colombia.
