    Airport shut down

    The Jomo Kenyatta International Airport was shut down indefinitely earlier this morning after a fire broke out at the immigration desk and spread throughout the arrivals terminal. Apparently, there were no casualties, but all outgoing flights have been cancelled until further notice. Incoming flights are being diverted to other airports within the region. This is unfortunate because Kenya is a major travel hub in Africa so the effects are far-reaching. Let's hope that the situation is resolved soon as this is a peak tourism season there.

    Just an update, in case you missed it on the news. All operations have been back to normal since yesterday and there are no stranded passengers. It will take some time to rebuild the destroyed arrivals terminal, but the airport is now fully operational.

    Usually these kinds of things are fixed ASAP since crippling the airport would have a huge impact on the whole country.

    I wouldnt expect it to last long at all, its very surprising something like this happens but it wont last long. The country knows that the airport is very important and will work on any problems immediately.

    I hope the situation is soon resolved, but at the same time I am very glad that no one was at all hurt.
