Kenya: State Considers Lifting 14-Day Quarantine Rule for Travellers

As Kenyans await the resumption of international flights on Saturday, the government is contemplating abolishing the 14-day quarantine policy so as to revive the tourism sector.

So far, four major international airlines – KLM, British Airways, Air France and Qatar Airways — have confirmed they will resume operations in and out of Kenya once the skies reopen.

Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala said health and safety remains Kenya’s top priority as it gradually reopens its economy.

Qatar Airways will resume operations from August 3 with 14 weekly flights whereas Air France will resume on August 6 with one flight to Paris every Friday. British Airways will operate four weekly flights from August 1 whereas KLM will be resuming from August 3 with four weekly flights. Emirates said it will be operating repatriation flights on Tuesday.
