Domestic flights today resumed taking off and landing at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Kenya, after the facility was damaged and temporarily shut down by a massive fire, CNN reports.
The blaze, which has been contained, engulfed the airport’s entire international terminal, although no casualties were reported. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
International arrivals are set to resume Thursday, Aug. 8, but there is no information about when departures will begin. However, authorities are allowing cargo currently at the airport warehouse to leave the country.
The damage from the fire could impact the export of agricultural products from Nairobi, as fresh fruits and vegetables are shipped to Europe by plane many times a week.
