Ground handler Kenya Aerotech Limited risks losing space at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) this month over an alleged Sh5 million debt ($49,000), according to an online report.

The Daily Nation reports that KAA has written to Aerotech, asking it to vacate JKIA by 31 January this year advising the company its handling licence will not be renewed.

This would bring to an end Aerotech’s three-year ground handling service at JKIA, having won the contract on 7 October, 2015. It received a six-month extension in September.

The Daily Nation report KAA has been having a Sh5 million dispute with Aerotech, with the latter claiming that KAA “had no basis for asking for such an amount”. Both have been engaged in an ongoing dispute since last year.
