    STATEMENT ON THE MINI- BUS ACCIDENT

    NAIROBI: Monday, 13 August 2018… Kenya Airways would like to confirm an incident, in which a shuttle van carrying some of its passengers was involved in an accident along Mombasa Road on Monday, 13th August 2018 at around 2:00am.

    The van was hit from behind by a trailer throwing it off the road, injuring a total of 33 passengers. The passengers were scheduled to leave for Bangkok, Thailand, last night but due to a technical problem on the scheduled aircraft, the flight was rescheduled, prompting the airline to accommodate the guests at a hotel.

    The injured passengers are being treated at various hospitals in Nairobi. This also includes the driver of the van.

    Kenya Airways Security and Kenya Police were deployed to the scene at the time of the accident. Investigations are underway to identify and arrest the driver of the truck, which did not stop following the accident.

    Our first priority is to focus on the wellbeing of our guests; we will issue general statements on a regular basis.

    We would like to thank all our employees, security agencies, medics and all other stakeholders for their support following the accident.
