Kenya Airways has announced the resumption of domestic flights following the government’s easing of movement restrictions imposed to contain the Covid-19 pandemic on Saturday.
In a statement, the national carrier stated that it will fly twice daily to Mombasa and once daily to Kisumu “as it continues to review the option of increasing frequencies as demand picks”.
“All passengers and airport users are still required to strictly observe safety measures to ensure the safety of all airport users,” KQ said.
“They are advised to familiarise themselves with health protocols including wearing facemasks throughout the journey and making use of sanitiser stations.”
Earlier today, during the Labour Day celebrations, President Kenyatta lifted the cessation of movement order affecting five counties earlier declared disease-infested.
He said the restriction of movement into and out of Machakos, Nairobi, Kajiado, Kiambu and Nakuru counties will end at midnight.
The President also announced that curfew hours will start at 10pm and end at 4am countrywide with effect from midnight, ending the 8pm-4am curfew in the five counties.
