Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, Nairobi, Kenya Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is Kenya‘s largest airport and the busiest airport in East Africa. It is the sixth-busiest airport in Africa. The airport is situated 15 kilometers (9 mi) from Nairobi’s Central Business District, and at the edge of the city’s built up area.  The airport is the main hub of Kenya Airways. Current Expansion Kenya Airports Authority announced their plans to expand Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Over the next two years, the authority announced that it would improve airport facilities across Kenya, especially at Nairobi. The expansion project was prompted as Jomo Kenyatta airport’s annual passenger flow topped 4 million, while the airport was only constructed to handle 2.5 million passengers. The expansion of the airport for USD 250 million will more than double its size, from 25,662 to 55,222 square meters (276,223 to 594,405 sq ft). Aircraft parking, which is currently constrained, will be increased from 200,000 to 300,000 square meters (49.4 to 74.1 acres), and additional taxiways will be built. The arrivals and departures section will be fully separated, and the waiting area will be revamped. The expansion will increase the airport’s capacity to 9 million passengers a year. The World Bank, AFD and EIB are financing the project.
