AfDB approves $160m loan for second Nairobi runway

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has approved a $160-million loan to Kenya for building a second runway at the main airport in the capital Nairobi, the bank said on Wednesday. The Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) has a single runway and plans for a second one were first announced in 2013 to boost Kenya’s standing as a regional travel hub.
