NAIROBI, Kenya - Domestic flights resumed Wednesday evening at Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport using the cargo terminal, as authorities struggled to contain the economic fallout from a devastating fire at the main international terminal. Kenya's economy is heavily dependent on international tourism and flower exports to Europe. International flights were to resume Thursday from the small domestic terminal. “President [Uhuru] Kenyatta wishes to reassure the entire aviation industry, investors, local and international travelers that everything is being done to resume normal operations," a statement from the presidency said.

WE recently went on a gorilla tracking expedition in Uganda and Rwanda. We went from LAX to London Heathrow on Virgin Atlantic. We have never been treated so well on a flight. The flight attendants were friendly, attentive, polite and professional -- so unlike on U.S.-based carriers. The cabin was very comfortable, and the food was outstanding. On our flight from London to Africa, we were on Kenya Airways. They were exceptional. Even on the shortest flights, we were served a hot meal, cocktails, tea, coffee and newspapers.

NAIROBI, Kenya - When immigration officer Phillip Ogembo arrived at the Nairobi airport just after 7 a.m. Wednesday, he found his office in the international terminal a wall of orange flames. Ogembo, 34, joined a throng of airport workers watching firefighters struggle without adequate water and equipment to put out an inferno that sent flames and billowing black smoke into the air for hours. The blaze reportedly took hold around dawn in the immigration area of Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, a major regional hub in East Africa for tourists and cargo.

Divers retrieved the flight data recorder Friday of the Kenya Airways jet that crashed into the Atlantic on Sunday with 179 people aboard. Ten people survived. The other "black box," the cockpit voice recorder, has yet to be located. The device--from Flight 431, which was bound for Lagos, Nigeria--was found in about 150 feet of water nearly two miles offshore. Only 86 bodies have been recovered from the wreckage.
