“Following the conclusion of the Africa Climate Summit (ACS2023), we’re seeing a surge in departing passengers, we therefore advise arriving at the airport three hours before your flight to prevent congestion and potential delays,” KAA advised.

KAA observed a notable increase in the volume of outbound travelers from JKIA, particularly following the conclusion of international summits in Nairobi.

“Last night, JKIA was honoured to extend a warm Kenyan welcome to even more esteemed leaders for Africa Climate Summit 23.
