Kenya faces two hurdles in quest for direct US flights

Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) will undergo the final audit by the United States Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at the end of this month to assess safety standards before it is given the last point of departure (LDP) status.

If the audit becomes successful, Kenya Airways will have moved closer to starting direct flights to the US next year, as it will have cleared one of the remaining two hurdles for direct Kenya-America flights.

Under the TSA’s rules, security measures, both overt and covert, have been enhanced for passengers at all last point of departure airports to the United States. These security measures include, but not limited to enhancing overall passenger screening, conducting heightened screening of personal electronic devices, and increasing security protocols around aircraft and in passenger areas.
