A plane carrying six people has crashed landed in Kenya’s main airport on Sunday, however no death was recorded.
The Kenyan Airport Authority said the Fokker 50 turoprop plane carrying six people had touched down on its belly after the landing gear failed. This resulted to flights being diverted to the port city of Mombasa.
The plane was reportedly flying from the north-eastern to of Wajir when it made the emergency landing. The Airport in which the plane crashed landed, happens to be one of the busiest airports in east and central Africa, acting as an important transport hub for both passengers and goods across the continent.
It serves a daily average of 19,000 passengers from Africa, Europe, and Asia. Another incident that disrupted activities in the airport like the Sunday’s incident, was a huge fire caused by an electrical fault that forced it to close for several days in August 2013. Officials of the airport said that the plane had been removed and the runway reopened.
