UK and Kenya governments are looking for ways to evacuate their citizens in these countries. Already Kenya airways have a plan to fly to London on Friday.

UK High Commissioner Jane Marriott has stated that a Kenya Airways flight will leave Nairobi for London on Friday for the evacuation of British citizens.

“Kenya Airways have put on a flight to London this Friday (April 24) at 0920 from JKIA. This is currently the only confirmed direct flight from Kenya to the UK,” she said on Twitter.

One Twitter user identified as @abdinoor_j posed: “Ticket price is too high.$1746 (Ksh.186,507) per person. What happened to the funds set aside for repatriation by the UK government? Unrealistic ticket price.”

According to Kenya’s High Commissioner to the U.K. Manoah Esipisu, those keen to fly back will be expected to meet the cost for their air ticket.

“Kenya Airways has given 211 as the minimum number of passengers for whom a chartered flight can be arranged,” he said in a statement.

He further recorded that Kenyans evacuated from the U.K will be subjected to the 14-28 days mandatory quarantine period required by the Government at their own cost.

Those in need of evacuation have been advised to contact the Commission via email at and emergency duty officer at +44 7979 973 794.
