UK provides training for Kenyan aviation inspectors
from MARIA MACHARIA in Nairobi, Kenya
NAIROBI – A team of Kenyan aviation security personnel from the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) and the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) has completed aviation security training in the United Kingdom.
The Kenyan team worked closely with senior UK Government Transport officials at Glasgow International Airport, to further their operational
aviation security knowledge and to gain high level practical auditing/compliance experience of airport security processes.
The five Kenyans delegates passed the training admirably and the tips and best practices picked up by all will assist in strengthening National
Quality Control Systems at Kenya’s airports, UK officials said.
“Aviation security is another vital element in protecting all our citizens from acts of terrorism.
“Security is a priority for us all, so I am delighted that the UK Government continues to work closely with the KAA and the KCAA in order to further strengthen the existing aviation security regime in Kenya,” said a government official.
He said in addition to this training, the UK Government has and continues to offer explosive trace detection machines and inert explosive training aids to the airports in Kenya.
“Terrorism is a global threat and the UK Government is keen to continue its close working relationship with Kenya in order to help improve
security in East Africa.”
