The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has announced a Ksh.963 million rehabilitation project for the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) terminals 1B and 1C. 

The 12-month project is aimed at refurbishing the departure halls to improve the check-in, security screening, retail operations, and passenger lounge experiences. 

“The refurbishment and facelift of the terminals aim to align the passenger experiences to match what is offered at terminal 1A. The remodelling project is an integral part of the ongoing JKIA Customer Service Improvement Plan (CSIP),” said Acting KAA Managing Director Alex Gitari. 

The refurbishment is part of the JKIA expansion strategy which seeks to boost the capacity of airport to handle at least 25 million passengers in five years from the current 7 million. 

The airport serves as a major cargo center for both inbound and outbound goods .
