Wilson Airport

Following a military incident close to the airport’s airspace, domestic airlines flying out of Wilson Airport in Nairobi have postponed their flights.

The airspace will be closed on Thursday, July 28, and Friday, August 5. The shutdown is anticipated to have an impact on a number of aircraft, particularly those taken by travelers traveling around the nation.

“The airspace will be closed on Thursday from 10am to 4pm and again on Friday from 10am to 4pm,” stated the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).

The consecration, presentation, and trooping of the colors by the 21 Battalion, the Kenya Rifles at Ulinzi Complex, Lang’ata, Nairobi, will be graced by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Airlines like Safarilink and Air Kenya, who operate scheduled services and charter flights from the airport are currently making plans to either reschedule their flights or rebook customers for departures on subsequent days. Additionally, passengers with reservations for those two days are urged to get in touch with the relevant reservation offices.

Following the brief inconvenience, airlines like Safarilink have already rescheduled their flight and advised their passengers to take the early morning flights as well as the afternoon flights.
