How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Nairobi

Make your flight to Nairobi a little easier by reading over these practical security tips:

  • Airport security personnel will request to see your boarding pass and travel ID as part of their checks. Store them in an accessible place, so they're ready for inspection.
  • Wallets, belts and keys must be placed in a bin for X-raying. If you pass through the body scanner with any one of these items, you'll be requested to turn back and remove them.
  • Electronics such as laptops, cameras and phones need to be sent through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure you can get to them quickly.
  • Toothpaste, deodorant and other toiletry items in gel, liquid or cream form need to be stored in containers smaller than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). They also need to fit in a 1-quart (1-liter) clear zip-lock bag.
  • Consider your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're easy to remove when you're doing the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
  • Pack any pocketknives or other sharp and pointy items inside your checked luggage. Airport security won't allow these on the aircraft.

Flights To Nairobi

Discover the culture, cuisine, and history of Africa—not to mention its world-renowned wildlife—with flights to Nairobi’s international airport (NBO). Nairobi is a multicultural melting pot and one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa. “The Safari Capital of the World” caters to adventure-bound tourists, but you’ll find charming surprises if you stay for a while. From nyama choma (Kenyan barbecue) to Maasai markets, Nairobi has come a long way from its beginnings as a railway stop.

Transportation from NBO

Nairobi flights touch down at NBO 9 miles southeast of the city center. International airlines will land at Terminals 1 or 2, while Terminal 3 is for domestic planes. There is bus service to the city center, however we recommend taking a taxi or arranging transportation with your hotel. If you take a cab, remember to agree on a price beforehand or take a metered “London-style” cab. You can book one of the hotels near Jomo Kenyatta International, but the area around the airport is mostly residential and traffic into the city center is notorious. Stay in the city if you’re looking for that urban vibe, and live like a local in the Central Business District. This bustling region is home to the Kenya International Conference Centre—which offers the best views of the city skyline—and Uhuru Park, a popular rallying point for everything from recreational sports to gospel choir practice. At the end of the weekly grind, you’ll find the burgeoning business class celebrating Furahiday, a combination of a Swahili word and “Friday” that translates to “happy day.”

Discover Your African Adventure
