The Kenya Airports Authority has suspended the newly introduced parking fees at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) that had sparked public uproar KAA, through its Twitter handle, announced that the new rates had been put on hold to allow for consultations with stakeholders. Jambo, we would like to notify the general public that KAA has put on hold the proposed new car parking rates pending further consultations with our airport stakeholders. — Kenya Airports (@KenyaAirports) April 17, 2018 The suspension comes barely a week after the authority had announced increased parking fees at airport’s drop-off and pick-up parking zones. At the time, KAA said other parking zones are also available at the airport, silo and casual, which are cheaper than the drop-off parking zone. In the suspended rates, parking at the drop-off and pick-up zones would have cost Sh100 for under 20 minutes, Sh250 for 20 and 40 minutes, Sh350 for 40 minutes and 1 hour and Sh500 for those staying for up to two hours. Parking rates at the silo was Sh100 for the first 30 minutes, Sh150 for up to one hour, Sh200 up to two hours, Sh300 up to four hours, Sh400 up to eight hours and Sh500 up to 12 hours. A lobby group filed a court case on Monday protesting the new parking rates it claims are exorbitant and exploitative to the public. The managing trustees of the Nairobi Foundation claim that the increase was done arbitrarily and without public participation.
