Kenya has suspended all inbound and transit passenger flights from United Arabs Emirates (UAE) for seven days.
Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) Director-General Gilbert Kibe on Tuesday morning said that the ban which took effect from Monday midnight was in response to a similar directive by the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) on December 20 last year.
The ban comes barely a few days after UAE extended Kenya flight ban after it established that travellers from Nairobi were testing positive for Covid-19 after arrival in the Middle East nation, despite carrying negative test results.
Last month, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) suspended all inbound and transit passenger flights to the Emirate of Dubai from any point in the Republic of Kenya.
On December 29, 2021, Emirates Airline said that it has, in turn, extended its flights from Kenya suspension to comply with the directive that was to end on December 24 until further notice.
“Inbound and transit passenger flights from UAE are suspended for a period of seven days. Talks have been happening and are still ongoing, but we are doing this in reciprocation of the similar ban. This is what the government has decided to do,” said Mr Kibe.
Kibe said the ban does not however affect cargo flights that are normally flown by carriers such as Kenya Airways and Emirates airline from UEA into Kenya.

She went on to plead with President Uhuru Kenyatta to step in and help her family out, which she felt was made to bear the heaviest brunt of the NYS corruption scandal.
“I want the President to know that we are being persecuted. My family has been through a lot. Even if I am a suspect, we have been persecuted for two years.
I used to work and all my money is stuck at NYS. I’d rather die or be thrown in jail than go through this
