Clear CIQ at: Passenger terminal; handlers escort passengers and crew entirely through process, which takes 15-25 min. (see text for details).
Parking: Business and general aviation parking at Aprons 1 or 3; parking assigned depending on fueling needs – see text for details. For peak period arrivals, handler will prearrange parking spot with airport operations. Generally there are no issues regarding parking availability for non-airline aircraft, although in most cases, passengers and crew will need to be transported to and from aircraft via van, all arranged in advance by handlers.
Hanagarage: Kenya Airways, extremely limited.
Fuel: Jet A1, major brands, no problems with fuel availability.
