Police and customs officials have arrested two members of Kenya Airways' #ticker:KQ in-flight crew on suspicion of smuggling drugs out of the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA).

The unidentified suspects were arrested after failure to declare some items thought to be drugs, the airline said in a statement Thursday.

“The airline is …working in tandem with the relevant authorities to get to the bottom of the matter,” Kenya Airways said.

“Kenya Airways adheres to all regulations and laws of Kenya and the countries it operates in,” it added.
