Kenyans will now be able to fly direct to the United States after the US government granted JKIA Category One status. "This is a major milestone in the growth and development of civil aviation in Kenya, East Africa and the rest of Africa," read a statement from the Kenya Airports Authority. With this category, there will be faster movement of goods and people between the two countries, eradicating delays especially on horticultural produce from Kenya. "Besides fast-tracking the process of commencing commercial flights from both Kenya and the US, the new status is expected to have a positive impact on tourism and promotion of trade and commerce," the statement continued.
 
Other countries in the continent with Category One status are South Africa, Cape Verde, Ethiopia and Nigeria.
