Combating the spread of COVID-19 “On Air”

The Ministry of Transport, infrastructure, housing urban development, and public works have developed a protocol to ensure the safety of travelers after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s direction of resuming International Air Travel on 1st August 2020.

The Protocol has therefore confirmed that all arriving passengers on international flights with COVID-19 negative certificates whose body temperatures are not above 37.5 degrees with no persistent cough, difficulty in breathing, or other flu-like symptoms and have negative tests carried out within the 96 hours before travel shall be exempt from quarantine.

For the passengers traveling out of the country, they will be required to abide by the particular travel, health, and COVID-19 related requirements of the destination country.

The passengers arriving on flights after the curfew with a valid air ticket and boarding pass shall be allowed to proceed to their hotels or residence.

Drivers are required to have evidence that they have come from the airport to drop or pick up passengers.

Passengers departing on flights after curfew with a valid air ticket and boarding pass shall be allowed to proceed to their departure airport.

Air operators are expected to provide guidance material to passengers regarding the application on the preventive measures on board.

The protocol recognizes that the adverse impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have been experienced in most sectors of the economy and the aviation industry is amongst the worst hit.
