Kenya Airways

Kenya Airways has suspended its Passenger flights to the United Kingdom (UK) effective April 9, 2021, until further notice.

In a statement KQ noted that the move was prompted by the directive issued by the Government of Kenya suspending all flights from the UK effective midnight 9th April 20201.

“Due to the increased demand for travel to the UK before the advisory talks effect on 9th April, we have added 2 new flights on 7th and 8th April 2021.

We sincerely apologize to all our customers for the inconvenience. Customers impacted by this directive my change their bookings for later travel or request a refund with all penalties waived. All tickets must be utilized before 31st Match 2022.” Reads part of the Notice from KQ.

On Friday, Kenya was among the latest countries to be included in the United Kingdom’s Covid-19 red list travel ban, over the rising cases of the novel coronavirus disease.

In a statement the UK said that visitors who have been in Kenya or transited through Kenya in the past 10 days will be denied entry into England.

However, Kenya hit back, stating that all passengers originating from or transiting through UK airports must undergo a mandatory 14-day isolation at a government-designated facility at their own cost upon entry into the country.

Kenyan nationals who are residents in the United Kingdom or transiting through United Kingdom airports into the country are exempt from the new measures.
