Dubai suspends all flights from Kenya… for 48 hours, flights to Nairobi unaffected

Dubai has suspended flights with inbound and transit passenger movements from Kenya to Dubai for the next 48 hours, effective from Monday December 20.

In a statement issued on the carrier’s website, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) said all air transport services to Dubai from Kenya will be temporarily suspended for 48 hours and that all outbound passenger operations from Dubai to Nairobi remain unaffected.

The statement reads; ‘’As per directive from Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), all air transport services with inbound and transit passenger movements to the emirate of Dubai from any point in the Republic of Kenya are temporarily suspended for 48 hours effective from December 20, 2021 at 10.30am (local time).

“Customers will not be accepted for travel on Emirates flights at Nairobi during this time. Outbound passenger operations from Dubai to Nairobi remain unaffected.’’

At the beginning of December, the National Authority for Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management (NCEMA) and the General Civil Aviation Authority had introduced new travel requirements for those coming on direct flights from the following countries: Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda, and Ethiopia.

On December 17, the UAE suspended entry of passengers from the Republic of Congo and tightened restrictions on flights from a number of other African nations.
