NAIROBI, Kenya, Jul 19 – The Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) suffered a third blackout in a span of thirty six hours on Monday night, forcing diversion of flights.

In the latest incident, flights had to be diverted to various airports including those in the neighbouring countries following the power outage which occurred at 1900hrs on Monday night.

Flights KQ 121 from Rome and KQ 763 from Johannesburg had to be re-routed to Mombasa international airport and KQ 500 from Libreville switched to Entebbe International Airport.

Kenya Airways Chief Executive Officer Titus Naikuni appealed to the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) to put measures in place to ensure such incidents do not recur as it could make Kenyans lose international confidence on the aviation industry...Any ideas to solve the problem..?
