Operations at Kenya's main airport gutted by fire earlier this month have fully returned back to normal, the Kenyan government said Monday.
A statement from the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) said there are no capacity issues at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), one of the busiest in Africa, noting that losses are yet to be quantified.
"Today we are happy to announce that JKIA is operating at 100 percent capacity. Works are ongoing to ensure that the quality of services being offered at the airport and its existing facilities are improved," KAA said.
The fire at East Africa's largest aviation hub disrupted air travel across the continent. No serious injuries were reported in the Aug. 7 incident, which coincided with the 15th anniversary of the bombing of the U.S embassy in Nairobi.
Investigations into the possible cause of the massive fire are still ongoing.
A team of UN experts are also studying the potential environmental impacts of the massive fire that engulfed the arrivals terminal.
The UN experts will identify key safety aspects to be considered in the establishment of temporary airport management arrangement following the request of the Kenyan government.
The government assured the public it was working round the clock to ensure that JKIA bounces back as a bigger and better airport.
"We continue to thank our stakeholders, clients and staff for the great support they have accorded us since the JKIA fire," it said.
JKIA is a crucial transit point for various airlines coming in and going out of Africa. The airport, dubbed East Africa's doorway, hosts tens of airlines ferrying passengers to and from Europe, Middle East, Africa and America.
