The move comes just two days after Kenya,in the list of countries allowed to Kenyan airspace excluded Tanzania as international flights resumes.

Among the countries that were permited into Kenya include Uganda, Rwanda, Namibia, Morocco, Ethiopia Canada, Japan, South Korea, UAE, Qatar, Italy, UK France, Switzerland, USA (except California, Florida and Texas).

However, Transport Ministry Cabinet secretary  James Macharia said the list is subject to review.
