Increased Cargo Activity Expected At Kenyan Airports

Growth in cargo and passenger activity as well as recent global security concerns

has necessitated the expansion of the Jomo Kenyatta Internationa Airport (JKIA) and encourage cargo operations at the fairly new Eldoret International Airport. Jomo

Kenyatta Airport's strategic geographic location gives it an edge in the East-West

and North-South traffic flow.
