Motorists driving out of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) will no longer be paying parking fees at airport exits.

In a piece of information posted on its official Twitter Account, the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has stated that plans to make major changes at the airport were ongoing.

KAA also said the changes were a major boost towards dealing with traffic snarl-ups that have been the norm at the airport.

“Jambo, we’ve made some changes! In a few hours, we will be going live with our new and modernized parking system at JKIA that will ensure that you do not suffer snarl-ups at entry and exit,” read part of the tweet.

For a while motorists have raised concerns over the traffic snarl up that is experienced in the airport and major roads that lead out and into the airport.

The norm has been for drivers to pay for parking fees at the main entrance of the airport – passengers are also required to alight from their vehicles and undergo a security checkup at the entrance.

This has in the past contributed to a traffic snarl up that has been witnessed at the airport.
