Kenya and Tanzania have resolved to solve their airport row. At a ?closed-door meeting on Friday between Tanzania?s Natural Resources and Tourism Minister Lazaro Nyalandu and Kenya?s Tourism Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie, the two nations have decided to hold bilateral talks over their problems.
The two countries will also meet to have a comprehensive discussion over all the issues that will help them facilitate the private sector to grow tourism between the two.
Their problems begun when Kenyan authorities put a ban on Tanzanian-registered vehicles from dropping off or picking up passengers at JKIA on allegations that Tanzania had continued to deny Kenyan registered vans to take tourists directly to Tanzania airports and national parks.
However, the two officials indicated that they are not competitors and for that matter will resolve all outstanding issues between their ministries.
Meanwhile, Kenya will facilitate transport to and from JKIA and lift the ban for Tanzania to access the airport.
The two countries have agreed that in order not to disrupt and inconvenience tourists, Kenya will help in the transfer of tourists within those three weeks of talks.
