Kenyans have taken to social media to protest the revised parking fees at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).
According to the revised rates by the service provider, Kenya Airports Parking Services (KAPS), motorists will pay Sh100 on entry and Sh500 for two hours.
Those parking for less than 20 minutes will pay Sh.100, those parking between 20 and 40 minutes will pay Sh.250, while those parking between 40 minutes and 1 hour will pay Sh.350.
The above revised rates are applicable to the drop-off and pick-up zones.
Parking at the other areas stands at a minimum of sh 100 from 0-30 minutes and sh 1,000 for 24 hours and above.
Below are some of the views shared on the popular Facebook Page Buyer Beware ;
Wakarima Munyiri: Then the barricade stalls and you wait in the queue for another 30 minutes and packing charges increase.
Carol Nyaga What?? It rarely takes less than 20min to enter, drop/pick a passenger and leave 😐 so most people will end up paying 250/-!!This is daylight robbery!
Sam Samm: Don’t forget that Wilson Airport is 100 Bob minimum
Ayiera Muluka: This is theft! Delayed flights, long checking out etc all mean you can easily wait in that airport for two hours and more!
Hoi Polloi: A plan designed by KAA, most yellow cabs are owned by staff wa KAA, to.drive online cabs out of jomo.
