Foggy weather causes flight delays at Nairobi’s
Jomo Kenyatta International Airport

NAIROBI (Xinhua) -- The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) on Friday announced possible flight delays due to heavy fog in Nairobi that prevented landing of aircrafts at the two main airports in the East African nation.

The airport authorities informed passengers expecting to land or leave from Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and Wilson Airport that flights will be either delayed or diverted due to foggy weather.

"Due to the current heavy fog being experienced in Nairobi, delays and diversions are expected to affect flight operations at JKIA," the KAA said in its alert to passengers. The KAA further urged those affected to contact their specific airlines to get the new arrival and departure times.

"The weather conditions in the capital city have also affected operations at Wilson Airport," the authority said.

The latest move came after Kenya Airways on Aug. 2 diverted five planes to alternative airports due to poor visibility caused by fog.

The Kenya Meteorological Department said in its latest weather forecast for the period ending Aug. 13 indicates that Nairobi will experience cool and cloudy mornings.
