The Kenya Civil and Aviation Association (KCAA) on Saturday attributed travel hitches to the power failures experienced. 

According to the KCAA Director Kibe Gilbert stated that the inconveniences were brought about by the power outage that totally messed up with the entire travel system. 

"Kenya Civil Aviation Authority wishes to inform the public that a failure of power systems affected our air traffic system equipment at Jomo Kenyatta  International Airport...," stated Kibe adding that the problem affected communications between the crafts and the traffic control.

The failure caused the increased separation of flights, in attempts to ensure safety for all. Meanwhile, the travel association has stated that the problem has since been addressed, and normal operations slowly resuming.

KCAA further apologized for the inconveniences caused to the travelers, at the same time stating its commitment to ensuring flight safety in the Kenyan airspace.
