Keep Off JKIA, Kenya Airways Warns Its Customers

The national carrier has sent out a statement advising its customers with flights scheduled after 11am to stay at home and keep off the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.
In the statement released by the Kenya Airways, only customers on KQ100 to London, KQ116 to Amsterdam and KQ 210 to Mumbai can proceed to check in.
Further to the strike by KAWU members, we expect disruptions on flights. Customers on flights after 11 A.M are advised not to come to the airport until further communication is shared. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Customers on KQ 100 to London, KQ 116 to Amsterdam and KQ 210 to Mumbai can proceed to check-in. We will keep you updated on the progress.
 We will communicate status of subsequent departing and arriving flights within the next 20 minutes.

Operations at the airport have been disrupted due to the ongoing industrial action being waged by the members of the Kenya Aviation Workers Union. 
The workers have downed their tools citing grievances that include their unhappiness with the board of management, unfair staff hiring and compensation and proposed takeover of the airport by the Kenya Airways.
No plane has landed at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport since 3am Wednesday and a Rwanda Air aircraft left the airport with zero passengers.
Queues are forming fast at the airport and our journalists on the ground have witnessed the blocking of some entry points by the disgruntled workers.
