11 December 2015, 18:35
Nairobi - Kenya Airways and RwandAir cancelled their flights to the Burundian capital on Friday, officials said, after gunmen launched attacks on military bases in Bujumbura in the early hours of the morning.
"The reason we could not land is that there is no
personnel," said Kenya Airways Corporate
Communications Manager Wanjiku Mugo, adding that all three of
its daily flights were cancelled.
A RwandAir official said its flight to Bujumbura on Friday
had also been cancelled. It was not immediately clear if the
airport had officially been shut.
