KQ gives latest update on accident that involved 33 passengers

Thirty people have been discharged.

In a statement to the press, KQ said that 30 passengers out of the 33 had been discharged, but the others are still hospitalized.

“Further to our earlier statement, Kenya Airways can confirm that 30 of our injured guests have now been successfully treated and discharged while 3 of the guests are still undergoing treatment.

“Our main priority remains with our guests’ wellbeing. We have opened a guest support centre at the airport offering guidance and information to the affected families and friends,” KQ said in a statement.

The minibus was on transit to a hotel where it was taking the passengers for resting after their flight, destined for Thailand, was rescheduled due to a technical problem.

The accident occurred as they headed to the hotel. A trailer hit the van from behind, forcing it off Mombasa Road.

Kenya Airways said investigations were launched and that the trailer's driver will be arrested. KQ opened a guest support centre at the JKIA for friends and families of the casualties. The hotline is +254 741 777 299.
