Kenya has suspended all inbound and transit passenger flights from the United Arabs Emirates.
The suspension takes effect fromJanuary 10, for a period of seven days.
“Inbound and transit passenger flights from UAE are suspended for a period of seven days. We are doing this to reciprocate a ban on Kenyan passenger flights to UAE,” Kenya Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement.
The ban comes a few days after Dubai suspended flights from Kenya citing fake COVID-19 certificates.
According to the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), most passengers from Kenya were testing positive yet they had negative COVID certificates.
