“The convenience of entrusting your belongings to a reliable luggage delivery business like Airport Mtaani cannot be overstated. Travellers can now bid farewell to the hustle and bustle of dragging heavy luggage when they land at JKIA, they can now enjoy the freedom to effortlessly walk out of the terminal building into their vehicles to their next destination," she said.

On his part, Kenya Airports Authority Chairman Caleb Kositany said plans are underway to expand Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and services like those provided by Airport Mtaani are well in line with the vision of a new JKIA.

“At Kenya Airports Authority we run about 22 airports across the country and we have plans to build a new terminal here [at JKIA] which will be state-of-the-art. This airport is a 1978 architecture that was designed for two million passengers but currently handles about ten million passengers. This [Airport Mtaani] is a Kenyan-driven initiative and we hope that you expand to other East African countries,” Kositany said.
