JKIA gets green light on direct flights to US

Last year, Kenya obtained a Category one status that allowed direct flights from the country to the U.S.

This followed years of conceited efforts by the government through the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.

“Category One is a status granted to a country.  On the other hand, Last Point of Departure is granted to airports,” KCAA Director General Gilbert Kibe said during a recent interview with Citizen Digital.

This comes after the historic meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his American counterpart Donald Trump in Washington D.C.

During his visit, President Kenyatta also met with several American business delegates where he witnessed the signing of investment deals worth USD 238 million(Ksh.23.9billion).
