Nairobi — The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) has increased parking fees within the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) for its visitors.

For those picking and dropping travelers at the airport, it would cost the motorist Sh100 to stay at the airport within 20 minutes, Sh250 between 20 minutes and 40 minutes, Sh350 between 40 minutes and an hour and Sh500 between an hour and two hours.

To park at JKIA, it would cost Sh100 for 30 minutes or less, Sh150 between 30 minutes and an hour, Sh200 for between one hour and two hours and Sh1,000 above 24 hours.

The move is aimed at checking on idleness and it would cost Sh1,000 to have a car unclamped.

Vehicles staying longer than two hours will be heavily penalized.

According to the Kenya Airports Parking Services (KAPS) - whose tagline is 'keep moving' - the changes take effect immediately and are only applicable to both drop-offs and pick-ups.
