The Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) has extended its suspension of all transit and inbound flights from Kenya until 24th December. The Authority had previously temporarily suspended all air transport services with inbound and transit passenger movements from Kenya on Monday 20th, 2021.

The directive comes amid concerns of rampant cases of fake COVID-19 certificates by travellers. The Authority issued the directive stating that customers will not be accepted for travel on Emirates flights in Nairobi during this time. DCAA however, did not give a clear reason for the flights suspension. Outbound passenger operations from Dubai to Nairobi remain unaffected.

“Affected customers do not need to call us immediately for rebooking. Customers can simply hold on to their Emirates ticket and when flights resume, get in touch with their travel agent or booking office to make new travel plans,” read the DCAA statement read in part.

In order to receive the latest updates on their flights, customers have been advised to doublecheck their contact details.
