Kenya travel ban extended by FTO members

The Federation of Tour Operators’ members have extended their travel ban to Kenya until Monday.

The decision taken this morning to extend the previous ban by two days comes due to continued political unrest and rioting following last week’s elections which has left more than 300 people dead.

Customers due to depart for Kenya during this period will be offered alternative holidays or refunds instead.

Members of the public already on holiday in the country are returning according to their original itineraries.

The FTO’s travel ban has been instigated following the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s decision to advise against all but essential travel to the country in the wake of the ongoing violence.
