More than a hundred Pakistanis who flew for Saudi Arabia on Tuesday through a connecting flight have landed in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.
According to details, over a hundred Pakistani passengers had arrived in Dubai through a private airline, from where they boarded Kenya Airways to reach Riyadh.
However, the Saudi authorities denied entry to the private airline under the COVID-19 travel restrictions, after which the plane took them to Nairobi, where they were quarantined for 14 days.
Media reports suggest that these Pakistanis have been left unattended in the Kenyan capital and have been given residence in the same hall of a private hotel to complete their quarantine period.
These passengers have fallen victim to travel agents’ wrong strategy. Many of them are traveling with families and do not have enough cash to afford return tickets after surviving 14 days of quarantine. The stranded passengers have appealed to the government for assistance.
