(Bloomberg) --

Kenya Airways Plc will resume flights to Tanzania after talks by the two nations’ transport ministers, rescinding a decision by the country’s Civil Aviation Authority.

The Tanzanian regulator had canceled plans to allow the airline to resume flights because it said Kenya excluded Tanzanians from the list of nationals allowed into its territory under revised coronavirus restrictions.

“We managed to clear the issues that we had,” Kenya’s Transport Secretary James Macharia said in a televised briefing Saturday. “We never stopped those flights, they never stopped our flights, and this very, very minor issue has been sorted out and we believe that if not today, by tomorrow we shall find Kenya Airways flying again.”
