Dubai Civil Aviation Authority has temporarily suspended all air transport services with inbound and transit passenger movements from Kenya for the next 48 hours starting on Monday at 10.30 am.
“As per the 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 10.30 am (local time). Customers will not be accepted for travel on Emirates flights to Nairobi during this time. Outbound passenger operations from Dubai to Nairobi remain unaffected”
In a statement issued on Monday, December 20, the DCAA did not give the reason for suspension but said the affected customers do not need to call immediately for rebooking, and can hold on to their ticket when flights resume.
DCAA might have taken the move over issues raised that some travelers presented fake COVID-19 certificates.
