KENYA LIFTS BAN ON AIR TRAVELS FROM SOMALIA

kenya-4573fe81

Kenya has lifted a ban on direct flights to and from Somalia barely a month after announcing a suspension of air travels between the two countries.

Kenya’s foreign affairs ministry says it hopes the move will lead to full normalisation of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

In a statement, the ministry however said that all existing travel protocols will be applicable – with travelers requiring a negative Covid-19 certificate.

Somalia has welcomed Kenya’s decision to reopen its airspace.

Kenya banned all flights to and from Somalia in mid-May but gave no explanation for the move.

Relations between the two countries have been strained for years now due to a long running maritime border dispute that is now at the International Court of Justice.

Somalia has also accused Kenya of meddling in its internal affairs, a claim Nairobi has dismissed.
