Kenya Granted Category 1 Safety Rating

The FAA has given Kenya a Category 1 aviation rating under its International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) program.

The approval means the African nation meets with international safety standards set by meets International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

With the Category 1 rating, Kenyan airlines that are able to secure the requisite FAA and DOT authority can establish service to the U.S.

The Category 1 announced follows an FAA assessment of the safety oversight provided by Kenya’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation last month.
