(eTN) – This afternoon saw emergency services swing into action at Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, when a Kenya Airways flight from Harare came in for a landing following a tire burst while taking off in Zimbabwe. Flight KQ 701 landed shortly after 4:00 pm in Nairobi with all emergency services at full alert and deployed along the runway, but thankfully the crew was able to land the plan without an incident and gratefully received the applause from their 96 passengers on board the flight.

It is understood from passenger statements that they had been briefed inflight about a possible emergency, and after their successful landing, counselors were also at hand for those who needed them.

Kenya Airways was also praised for their swift and comprehensive briefing of the media and the general public over the incident and notably the use of social media, i.e., KQ’s Facebook page and Twitter, which instantly reached those who needed to know, including eTurboNews.
