Delta denied permission to fly to Nairobi, Monrovia

Delta Air Lines has been denied permission to fly directly to Nairobi, Kenya, and Monrovia, Liberia, until security standards there are met or until assessments change, the Transportation Security Administration said Wednesday. The agency said it is allowing the airline to go ahead with plans to fly directly to Abuja, Nigeria. Delta had announced the direct flights to the three African cities last year, and air service had been expected to begin this month
