Korean Air to halt Kenya flights
By Youkyung Lee, The Associated Press
SEOUL, Korea, Republic Of - Korean Air Lines Co. will suspend flights to Kenya in what it said Thursday is a measure to prevent the spread of Ebola.
The South Korean flag carrier will stop operating flights between Incheon and Nairobi from Aug. 20, it said in a statement.
No Ebola cases have been reported in Kenya or other parts of East Africa but the South Korean airline has a history of taking risk minimization measures before other airlines.
Ebola has killed more than 1,000 people and sickened nearly 2,000 in its current West African outbreak that has hit Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
Korean Air flies to Nairobi, which is the main gateway for East Africa, three times a week. It did not say when it would resume its service.
The carrier's statement said the suspension of flights would help prevent the spread of the Ebola virus.
