Kenya says it will not ban Tanzanian flights despite standoff

Kenya has said it will not ban Tanzanian flights from landing in the country amid a standoff that has seen Dar es Salaam stop three Kenyan airlines from flying there.

Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) director-general Gilbert Kibe who spoke to Journalists in Nairobi said Precision Air has existing traffic rights that will not be nullified despite the existing stalemate.

Tanzania has revoked traffic rights for Kenya airways on its airspace following a move by Kenya to include the neighboring country from the list of safe countries.

Mr. Kibe however said he is still engaging with his counterpart in Tanzania to resolve the current blockade imposed by Tanzania.
