Kenya Airways ha offered a one way complimentary flight for Kenyans in the United States of America.
In a statement on Tuesday morning, Kenya Airways stated that any Kenyan citizen stranded in the USA and wants to get to Kenya will be given the complimentary ticket.
“As our last flight departs JFK today, we are offering one-way complimentary tickets to Nairobi, to Kenyan citizens in urgent need,” the statement read in part.
Notably any person coming to Kenya will be subjected to a mandatory quarantine as directed by the government.
Passengers who would like to board the flight were asked to contact the KQ team and make the necessary arrangement.
“Please contact our team on +1(866)5369224 for more information. All passengers will be subjected to entry/screening procedures instituted by the MOH,” the statement continued.
In a statement on Sunday, KQ said cargo flights will however remain operational to offer emergency services and supplies.
“…the Government of Kenya has issued a directive that requires all incoming and outgoing international passenger traffic to and from Kenya to cease from midnight on March 25, 2020,” said KQ Managing Director and CEO Allan Kilavuka.
To comply with this directive, we have therefore temporarily suspended all international services effective midnight 25th March 2020, until further notice.”
