the article behind it:
New airport design in Nairobi offers the Kenyan Savanna experience



The proposed Jomo Kenyatta Greenfield Airport in Nairobi, Kenya, is an inspirational vision of an ecologically-designed international airport grounded in the landscape and environment of Kenya. The triple bottom line of environmental, financial and social sustainability is emphasised in all parts of the design-resulting in a building that is distinctly Kenyan.

The airport's modern materials and building system enhance a design that evokes the stunning natural scenery of Kenya. Based on the characteristic lines of the Kenyan horizon-land, sky and mountains, the airport's landscape slopes up from the ground to meet the green roof, and continues into the terminal, forming courtyards and gardens. Through this connection to the natural surroundings, visitors and passengers can experience the essence of the Kenyan Savanna without leaving the terminal.

The temperate climate of Nairobi is a major driver for the building's sustainable design features. By creating a terminal envelope that sheds physical barriers and blurs the lines between exterior and interior spaces, the design minimizes required heating and cooling. This quantifiable gain elevates the terminal experience: by bringing vegetation and natural ventilation into the building, transit passengers can enjoy fresh air and the lushness of the Kenyan terrain.

Beyond its environmental features, the design speaks to the aspirations, heritage, and use patterns of Kenyans. The concept embraces how Kenyans use civic spaces. Specifically, departures and arrivals passenger flows accommodate pick-up and drop-off by large groups of family and friends, a cultural norm. Stylistically, the terminal reflects modern and vernacular Kenyan architectural traditions. Bold sculptural elements often seen in modern Kenyan buildings are interspersed with bundled structures and woven materials that lend their individual character and natural identity.

More than just an efficient transfer point, the airport offers Kenya a signature gateway to the globe and meets the needs of international air travelers in a thoughtful and memorable way.

A few days ago KAA decided to go back to the drawing board for consultation on Greenfield's renders before construction starts:

Quote:
KAA seeks fresh input on Sh55bn terminal
http://www.nation.co.ke/business/new...k/-/index.html

The airports authority has bowed to pressure and gone back to stakeholders for fresh consultations on the design of the Sh55 billion airport terminal.

The Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) says it will give stakeholders an opportunity to engage with the project’s architects and accommodate their views in the final design before a Chinese firm which bagged the tender starts construction.

The project, to be known as the Greenfield terminal, has been designed by Pascall and Watson Architects, a firm based in the UK which applied for the tender in conjunction with Anhui Construction engineering group (ACEG).

Construction is already behind schedule. The tender was suppose to be awarded in Q3 2011 with costruction starting soon after. Now that the KAA will be taking concerns into consideration from KQ and its stakeholders in the airport's design construction more than likely wont start till early next year.

Edit: though I could be pessimistic and construction could start as early as November or December.

Pattni-link company loses grip of large section of duty free shops
http://www.nation.co.ke/business/new...z/-/index.html



IN SUMMARY:
  • The High Court on Monday revised a ruling which, in October, had stopped KAA from repossessing the entire area of duty free shops initially leased out to the World Duty Free Company in 2003.

  • The revised High Court ruling effectively made it possible for KAA to repossess the majority of the shops and lease them to third parties.

  • The dispute between the duty free company and the KAA started in 2008 after the latter indicated its intention not to renew the lease to the former, and advertised for other operators to apply

FastJet launch

FastJet launched services last week with 3 A319s. It's the new set low-cost airline in Africa owned by easyJet's founder (bought Kenyan low-cost carrier Fly540). Its hub is Dar Es Salaam's Julius Nyerere International Airport, but JKIA in Nairobi will serve as a second hub.



Quote:
Air travel in Africa is among the most expensive in the world, with some 45 minute flights costing more than 300.

Fastjet offers base fares from 13 before taxes, cheaper than taking long-distance buses, and begins its first commercial flights from its hub in Tanzania's commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, on Thursday.

Its British bosses, former senior managers of airlines including easyJet, Go, FlyBe and Ryanair, intend to open new hubs in Kenya next and later in Ghana and Angola.
"There is no typical fastjet passenger," said Ed Winter, its chief executive and formerly chief operating officer at both Go and easyJet.

"There will be everyone from people who have never flown before, to traders finding new markets, to government ministers. The idea is to give people who used to spend 12 hours on a bus to visit their relatives the option to fly for the first time."

Fastjet's first aircraft, a 156-seat Airbus A319 that was until six weeks ago in service with easyJet, took its inaugural public flight from Dar es Salaam on Tuesday, a 40-minute round trip over the Indian Ocean above Zanzibar.

That wasn't the official plan after expansion + construction. KAA rejected the proposals that I already posted about a month or two ago, and a new design is in the works.
