Following a statement issued late yesterday, Kenya Airways have confirmed that they have moved their domestic operations from the temporary terminal set up at the Cargo Terminal - done after the fire at JKIA on the 08th of August and now back to Terminal 3 with immediate effect. Passengers booked on any of their flights to Mombasa, Malindi, Eldoret and Kisumu will now resume to the main terminal complex for their check in and arrival procedures.
The airline's regional flights, including departures by partner airline Precision Air, have at the same time returned to Terminal 2, where all international and regional departures are now once again processed, following additional refurbishments in that part of the airport.
In the statement, KQ reiterated that international arrivals will continue to be processed via the converted parking garage, which will remain in place until further notice while the main arrivals terminal is being reconstructed. Kenya Airways' Chief Operating Officer, Mbuvi Ngunze said that the move will ensure greater convenience and comfort for passengers.
"We wish to thank the Kenya Airports Authority and the Government of Kenya for their efforts to restore airport facilities following the fire incident. We also appreciate our customers' patience and understanding during this period, and reiterate our commitment to consistently improve our service offering to them" Mr. Ngunze added.
The Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) has successfully translocated a number of rhinos from Lake Nakuru National Park and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to the newly established Borana Rhino sanctuary in Laikipia.

About the ski trip:
Zürs is a small village situated on a high valley in the mountains of the Arlberg, in the west of Austria, at an altitude of 1,720m. Zürs has a reputation for good late season snow, and over the years that we have been skiing there we have not been disappointed.
The Arlberg ski pass includes Zürs, Lech and all of the resorts in the St. Anton area. It boasts 260 kilometers of groomed slopes, serviced by 85 modern ski lifts and cable-cars, which open up a tremendous variety of skiing. We have found that there is plenty to keep skiers of all abilities happy and occupied. And there is a wonderful range of off-piste skiing available in fresh snow.
Hotel Erzberg is a traditional, comfortable and stylish hotel, owned and run by Barbara Schneider and her daughter Sabrina. It has a great location, with the village centre and the closest lift only 50 meters away. When there is good snow you are able to ski right back to the ski room door! All 25 rooms have private bath /shower, WC, hairdryer, satellite TV and safe. Most have a balcony. There are five rooms that take a family of four. The bar and lounge make for fun "après ski", and the sauna, steam room and relaxation area, with infra red therapy cabin, and a possible massage, are wonderful to help ease away your aches and pains. Skis and boots are stored in a heated boot room.
The larger resort of Lech, with greater choice of shopping, restaurants, ice rink and tobogganrun, is only 4 kilometers away, serviced by a frequent bus, which is included in your ski pass. The town of St. Anton, for shopping and a different scene for "après ski", is easily reached by bus or taxi.
