I usually fly other airlines and am spoiled by flying Delta. Kenya Airways was amazing. Great experience

Kenya airways suffers from a poorly managed immigration department at the JKIAirport. With two 747 unloading the process was , as first limited to ONE immigration agent. A second was later added. I was in the earl.y group but passport control took 2 hours. There is a Sky Priority immigration line but as Sky Priority Elite members, the JKIAirport staff did not let Sky Priority people use it. They reserved if for flight crew only.

Reandair has amazing hospitality. A meal in an hour and a half flight?!? What?!? That’s unheard of in today’s cost cutting industry. Decent spacing between seats too!

May 8, 2018

Asked for tea, did not get it

Apr 4, 2018

It took a very long time to get bags once we landed at JKIA!!

Mar 7, 2018

If you have long legs like I do, then leg room is a challenge.

My friends power bank was stolen from his checked bag, definitely not good

What airport is best to fly into Nairobi?

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:

  • Security staff will expect to see your boarding pass and passport upon arrival. Store them in an accessible place, so they're ready for inspection.
  • Remove your shoes, belt and jewellery before approaching security. Items like these are not permitted in the body scanner.
  • Digital cameras, laptops and other electronic devices must be placed in a tub to be X-rayed.
  • Flying with a favorite perfume? As long as it contains no more than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) and it's placed in a clear resealable plastic bag, you can keep it in your carry-on luggage.
  • Think about your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to take off when you're doing the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
  • Scissors and multi-tools are not permitted on board the aircraft. Pack them in your checked luggage to avoid leaving them at the security checkpoint.

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

Make every day Furahiday with cheap flights to Nairobi from Travelocity. Bundle and save when you book your airfare and hotel together with our Nairobi vacation packages. Then kick back and relax with a cup of coffee—and imagine yourself in a Kenyan café drinking java grown just miles away.
