So far, no deaths or injuries have been reported, according to the BBC. The aircraft was travelling from Wajir when it made the emergency landing at one of the busiest airports in east and central Africa.

This is not the first time the airport which serves up to 19000 daily passengers has been forced to close down. In August 2013, a huge fire forced its closure for several days.

    Plane crash is horrifying, an event that we could not stop from happening. That’s why the very least for passengers can do is to make sure that they’re booking their flights to a reliable and established company in the industry. If something bad happen, they are responsible to give all what the passenger deserves.
