FAA inspectors in Nairobi for category 1 audit

Posted 27 May 2016 · Add Comment

FAA inspectors are in Nairobi performing a category 1 audit to determine if the can grant Kenya category 1 status.

Until the status has been granted, direct flights between Kenya and the US will be impossible, meaning the country cannot tap into a larger tourism market.
 
The separation of passengers at Terminal 1A and Terminal 1E, better security surrounding the airport’s perimeter, and the large amount of money spent on upgrades is leaving airport staff hopeful for achieving category 1 status.
