NAIROBI, March 7 (Xinhua) -- Flight operations at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), disrupted on Wednesday by a strike, have been restored, Kenyan authorities said Thursday.
"KAA wishes to inform the public that normal operations have been restored at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA)," the Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) said in a statement.
The strike, by more than 1,000 employees affiliated to the Kenya Aviation Workers Union across all airports and airstrips in the country, sparked confusion, flight cancellations and massive passenger queues.
The employees are opposed to the handover of management of JKIA to Kenya Airways and are also accusing the national carrier's leadership of financial wastage.
The union members, including cabin crew, ground staff, security, air traffic controllers and maintenance staff, have questioned the proposed merger.
