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!!

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

How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Nairobi

Your journey to Nairobi begins the minute you've satisfied all the security checks. We've summarized a few hints and tips to ensure you pass through quickly:

  • Have your passport and boarding pass somewhere handy. They'll be the first things you'll be instructed to produce by airport security.
  • It's helpful to know that belts with metal buckles can set off the body scanner's alarms. If you have one on, you may be told to place it in a tray before proceeding.
  • Digital cameras, laptops and other electronic devices must be placed in separate bins to be X-rayed.
  • When it comes to traveling with gels and liquids, all passengers are allowed a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to transport containers no greater than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Hiking boots and other heavy shoes are usually X-rayed by airport security. It might be wise to wear simple sneakers instead.
  • Scissors and multi-tools are not permitted on board the aircraft. Put them in your checked luggage to avoid forfeiting them at the airport 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.
