Airport Lounges in Nairobi

After the fire in the Nairobi airport the airport lounges were closed. This was true in my last (December 2013) visit have they reopened?

There is now one lounge but it's for Kenya Airways (and their partners) business class passengers only.

Is it possible to pay to get into the lounge if you're not a business class passenger?

It wasn't in Feb, doubt things have changed. I asked, as the lounge is the one which used to be a pay lounge. But I think the old KQ business class lounge was destroyed so they have taken over the old pay lounge, so there is no longer a pay lounge.

That's frustrating! I just found online that it is only small so limited on space. Looks like it's going to be a long 6 hours in the airport then!

I wish BA would reopen its lounge.

KQ has opened but on my last three trips it was standing room only. BA have set up a temporary one

Pesh, are you saying that there now is a BA lounge at NBO? Please advise where it is located.

As far as I'm aware the only Lounge is the KQ / KLM one and these recent posts support that

At the end of March BA had set up their Business Class food and wine in the departure gate waiting area. There is no lounge as yet.

I have read that a new pay lounge run by Swissport (Aspire Lounge) may open at JKIA in the next couple of weeks.
