FAQs - booking Kenya flights

  • Which airlines offer the most frequent service between Kenya and Canada?

    Among the numerous large companies that offer flights linking Kenya and Canada, Qatar Airways is recognized as one of the most reputable. If you want to improve the dependability of your flights when travelling between Canada and Kenya, Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) is one of the greatest airport options to take into account. Flair Airlines, Air Canada, and WestJet are a few of the carriers that use this airfield as their main hub.

  • What airport should a visitor fly into if they want to enjoy frequent sporting events in Kenya?

    The best way to observe local sporting events when visiting Kenya is to fly into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO). Most of Kenya's stadiums are in or nearby Nairobi City, the country's capital. Some excellent locations in Kenya to see your preferred local sporting events include Nairobi City Stadium and Nyayo National Stadium, especially on weekends. From NBO Airport you can reach these stadiums via rental cars, train, taxis, or buses. 

  • Do I need a visa to travel to Kenya?

    Canadian citizens are required to apply for a tourist visa prior to their arrival in Kenya. You can get an e-Visa by visiting the website of the Kenyan Department of Immigration Services. A single-entry visa costs 5,770 KES (51 CAD) and is valid for 90 days. Once your visa is approved, you should bring a printed copy with you to the airport. Be aware that your passport should be valid for at least 6 months beyond your expected departure date.

  • Are there direct flights to Kenya?

    While there are no direct flights from Canada to Kenya, many national carriers offer one-stop flights from Toronto Pearson International Airport (YYZ) and Montreal-Pierre Trudeau International Airport (YUL). Most flights include a layover at one of Europe's major airports. Kenya Airways offers a direct flight from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, which might be a convenient option if you search for a cheap flight to New York.

  • Where should I fly to within Kenya?

    While Moi International Airport in Mombasa services some international flights to Europe, the vast majority of international flights to Kenya arrive at the main airport, Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi. If you are flying in from Canada, you will probably find better and cheaper connections to Nairobi.

  • I want to visit the Masai Mara. Which airport should I fly into?

    To visit Kenya's largest wildlife reserve, you can fly into one of several airports such as Mara Serena Airport (MRE), located in Masai Mara. Most connections depart from Wilson Airport which is the domestic airport in Nairobi, but you can also catch a flight from Mombasa if you are travelling from the coastal region.

  • How long is the flight to Kenya?

    An average direct flight from Canada to Kenya takes 27h 11m, covering a distance of 20514 km. The most popular route is Toronto - Nairobi with an average flight time of 19h 25m.

  • What is the cheapest flight to Kenya?

    The cheapest ticket to Kenya from Canada found in the last 72 hours was C$ 1,143. The most popular route is Toronto Pearson Intl to Nairobi Jomo Kenyatta Intl and the cheapest round-trip airline ticket found on this route in the last 72 hours was C$ 1,245.

  • What are the most popular destinations in Kenya?

    The next most popular destination is Ukunda (5%).

  • How does KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool help me choose the right time to buy?

    KAYAK’s flight Price Forecast tool uses historical data to determine whether the price for a given destination and date is likely to change within 7 days, so travellers know whether to wait or book now.

Top tips for finding cheap flights to Kenya

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Kenya flight deals.
  • The majority of travelers from Canada arrive at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), Kenya's main international entry point. The NBO Airport is perhaps the best airport to fly into if you want to explore more of Kenya's well-known towns and cities, including Kisumu, Nakuru, Ruiru, Kiambu, Thika, and Limuru.
  • Although Moi International Airport (MBA) is an alternative airport with regular flights to Kenya from Canada, the majority of commercial travellers opt to fly into NBO Airport. NBO Airport is a preferred airport for travelers on official commercial trips due to its proximity to Nairobi City, which acts as the country's capital and is home to the bulk of Kenya's large businesses' head offices.
  • The Nairobi city centre is accessible through bus number 34, which is run by Citi Hoppa, which departs from the airport's bus terminal located halfway between Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. The green and yellow color scheme and slightly larger size of the buses make them easier to identify than the common "matatu" buses in Kenya.
  • Most flights from Canada to Kenya include a layover at a major European airport. Due to its economic and historic relationship with the European Union, many cheap flights to Kenya are available from European countries such as the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.
  • While some resorts and national parks in Kenya accept U.S. dollars, in most places you will be required to pay with cash, using the Kenyan shilling. Be aware that it is easier and more favourable to exchange U.S. dollars, British pounds or euros in Kenya.
  • Kenya is mostly a cash-driven society, even though some of the high-end resorts and hotels accept credit cards. You can use your credit card to withdraw cash from ATMs, which are readily available in airports and in the major cities such as Nairobi and Mombasa.
  • If you are planning a trip to Kenya's famous Diani beach, consider flying into Ukunda Airport (UKA), which is located approximately 3 km from Diani beach. Air Kenya offers daily connections to and from Wilson Airport (WIL) in Nairobi.
  • To visit Tsavo East National Park, consider flying into Moi International Airport (MOI) in Mombasa, which is closer to the park than Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Nairobi. You can then travel to the park by car. Tsavo East is about 3h 30min away from Mombasa.
  • To get to Malindi's marine reserve and Watamu beach, you can either drive along the Coastal Highway from Mombasa or fly directly into Malindi Airport (MYD) from Nairobi.

It was a Red-Eye flight so was not comfortable enough to sleep, but seat was as expected. Crew was great and in-flight entertainment was excellent. Flight was smooth

It was a Red-Eye flight so was not comfortable enough to sleep, but seat was as expected. Crew was great and in-flight entertainment was excellent. Flight was smooth

We just spent $6000 on our first trip since pre COVID and we were stranded on the runway of our departing airport for 2 hours and 15 minutes while our layover was only an hour and a half. We were told by the pilot we were next for de-icing and then got bumped by 3 other planes. Pilot went on to say they only had one guy working the de-icing where they usually have at least 2. In Rochester. In the heart of winter. Someone missed a step and should be fired. I'm not done.

Crew was great! I need wheelchair assistance and they knew who I was and updated me that my chair was on its way and to just hang tight. There was some turbulence but the captain announced we would be going thru it and he handled the plane well. Landing was soft and his.

I liked the cleanness in the bathroom and good crew on board and at boarding gates. There was no Hindi (Bollywood) movies. The entertainment can be improved as it is one of the worst one I saw when I compared it with other airlines. The Mumbai to Amsterdam flight did not have any food for my family which does not contain eggs in it though we have selected “Hindu Asian vegetarian meal”

Flight was on time, the staff was personable & professional, & the plane arrived on time.

I received the two differed meals: chicken and pasta. I asked and I received. I am anti-wasting food!

The boarding announcement was hard to understand and I almost missed getting on board because of the garbled announcement.

Late flight, always blaming the flight crew, stale almonds, pushy people. Why don’t they have the people sitting in the back board first? So much easier getting through an empty plane! Duh!!

The crew in Chile was late to open the counter to check in. It was the longest check in ever. But they were pleasant and thorough. Food was great going to Chile, coming back to USA was pretty bad. All the airplane crew were great.

I have to say that Delta has improved their service radically since I flew with them last. I purposely have avoided flying with them for years owing to absolutely terrible service. This is no longer the case, I am glad to say.

Medíocre. The food wasn't good (although not bad, bad) and the staff wasn't kind. I asked for n extra blanket, the steward never came back, serving us roughly.

Excellent apart from transport to actual plane 10 minutes from the actual gate , walking out in the tarmac in the rain and having to climb stairs to enter while holding luggage.

They wanted to close counter although they did not provide the wheelchair requested which ended by going alone to transit security and lost long time and they did not want to wait .

Did not find the wheelchair that supposed to assist and went to a long queue for transit security chk which was very slow and boarding desk wanted to close counter although that they knew that I am minutes away because of their mistake of not providing the wheelchair.

Boarding was smooth and on time. The seat was comfortable and the entertainment worked. Staff were gracious.

Everything went smoothly with Air France. There was a delay in departure which seemed to relate to the immigration services being short staffed.

We transited through Chad and what was supposed to be a 1hr 20 minutes transit time lasted over 4hrs. We didn't get regular updates until we complained. After a 10hr flight from Paris no form of refreshment given and finally arrived Abuja over 6hrs later and none of my bags came

Crew was professional. Boarding has few seats . Since the plane was not full would have been nice to change seat on the internet

Sky priority means you get to use the KLM business Lounge.

The crew was great and handled our unexpected detour with proactive communication.

The flight was one hour late. The food is mediocre and the screen was broken

Seat in front of my wife was broken so it reclined further than normal and without having to push the recline button so my wife had absolutely no room the entire 17 hour flight. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline at all. Also.. my tray table was sticky and dirty right away before I even used it. Also...the floor in the back of the plane from our row of seats on back was totally soaked and both times we landed water came rushing out of the food/servant area like a flood onto the same already wet carpet. It got everything wet that was placed around our feet...including our shoes and socks.

On my return flight the TV did not work the entire flight! They knew it wasn’t working but they let me sit there. The guy sitting nièce to me told me he was ok the previous flight and it wasn’t working. This is business class by the way!

Same but worse than international. The inter African flights are worse.

The entertainment (movies) blockbuster and classics never change. I am a frequent Ethiopian flyer and this should be addressed. Not much changed from my summer flight and my December flight. It is annoying - surely you can update the selections more often. Same with food options. It becomes extremely boring to be offered the same exact meals from Washington to Addis to Maputo every trip, each time. AS

The check in staff was amazing. Best customer service! The plane was old! My entertainment on the first flight didn't work at all, in my seat or in the seat next to me. The bathroom doors were old and troublesome. One of the bathrooms, the whole sink panel was broken. Everything felt old and falling apart. The airline stewardesses were amazing and quite hospitable. When there were delays, they kept us well informed. Transit was GREAT! I wasn't sure how I would make it to my next flight in 1 1/2 hours but the security lines were short and efficient. The C gates in Addis Ababa were CROWDED! That whole space downstairs was too crowded and challenging to manuever. I usually fly Ethiopian within Africa and was interested to see how the experience would be intercontinental. Overall, I would choose it again if it was cheaper than Delta/Air France or Lufthansa/KLM. I wouldn't make it a first choice if the prices were the same because the planes are so old! The food and entertainment also weren't as good. Good selection of movies but as I mentioned, on the first flight they didn't work at all (I slept so it was okay) and the 2nd flight it was glitchy. All in all, I didn't hate it but it would be a first choice only if it's cheaper.

The wifi service was really poor I try to use it the service was extremely poor if that could be improved that will go a long way

The food really sucks And they really need to work on entertainment The movie selection is herendous .

Hot, uncomfortable and very rough take off and landing. Very regrettable.

The seats were quite uncomfortable despite having good legroom. The 350s are quite nice but the problem is on the old 777 aircraft. Special meal requests are not catered for as they should. They never had any ice for drinks.

Good flight. Paid for seats sat the frront section of the economy. Better than rear cabin.

Flight was delayed for 9 hours. We finally arrived ved at 0435hrs instead of 1950hrs the previous day. No compensation was provided.

Apart from delay of 3 hrs in Nairobi for onward flight to Dar all fine. Looked like operational issues caused it.

I booked a round trip flight and boarded a Kenya Airways trip from New York (JFK) to Nairobi (JKIA). First flight from New York to Nairobi was uneventful with no issues. However, the return flight was beyond disappointing. To begin with I had paid an extra $60 each for premium seats (me and my wife) in economy aisle 15 (B & A). However, upon settling down in the middle seat, I noticed that the controller had been ripped off meaning I would not have access to some of the seat functionalities like the individual lighting etc. I proceeded to alert a flight attendant that the controller was missing and she politely responded to me by telling me if I need anything, to use my wife’s seat controller (on the window seat) to call for assistance and I would be assisted accordingly. I was surprised by the response that she gave as it felt like my comfort and request for a service that I paid for was undermined, but nonetheless I opted to play it nice and kept my calm. After this I engaged in a conversation with a passenger (Caucasian / White male) who sat next to me on the aisle seat. In the process of having this conversation I asked him if he had paid for his seat. He went ahead to politely tell me that he had been moved from a seat in the back by one of the flight attendants and had not paid any extra fees. During this conversation, he noticed that the charging docks were not working and he needed to charge his iPad to watch his Netflix show (it was on pause). Alarmed by this, he went ahead and flagged one of the flight attendants who without wasting any time acted astonished and as fast as lightning was able to find him a better seat a few rows in front. Please note, all the charging plugs were not working for the three seats. In summary, below are the reasons for the low rating: 1. Charging for a broken seat: Kenya Airways should not charge for a defective seat. If a seat is defective and is paid for, the airlines should work out a way to either refund the customer or move the customer to a better seat – regardless of skin color. 2. Below Par Customer Service: Do not debilitate a customer’s request especially when a paid for service is not delivered – regardless of skin color. Assuming that I am comfortable with having to either keep alerting the flight attendant or relying on my wife’s seat to perform some of the functionality I may need is ridiculous. 3. Biasness / Inequality / Prejudiced Behavior: The Caucasian/ White male was treated with more favor. Not only was he moved around to make sure he was comfortable (free of charge) but all his complaints were resolved immediately without any hesitance. On the contrary, I being a black man of African descent who had paid an additional premium for his seat, I was completely ignored and told to settle for what I got.

It has been 1 week since arriving at my destination and I still have not recieved my kite surfing bags. Office will not communicate properly on location or when my bags will arrive. No advice on what to do on luggage that has not arrived in over a week. Simply not happy with Kenya airways at the moment.

Excellent. They canceled our flight & put us up for the night. Then upgraded us. We are impressed

On a long flight us customers need more rehydration by the crew. Some of us have water bottles but no crew is coming around to offer water. I’m not saying issue us all with plastic water bottles.

The flight staff were not very kind. I went back to get a drink, 4 of them back there chatting. They all looked at me continued to talk then they started doing stuff and one finally asked after I was standing there awhile what I needed. This happened multiple times. The movies were not the great and seemed dated. My seat squeaked every time I moved and it moved around a bit.

The flight attendants on this flight were incredible! One even gave me her own dinner when my special meal order wasn’t transferred due to a flight delay! She insisted and I was so grateful. That is going above and beyond! The issue I had with the flight was with Lufthansa support. I missed my connection due to a flight delay and they wouldn’t rebook online, only in person. This took a lot of time and visits to the airport waiting for a Lufthansa agent to arrive 5 hours later than posted and almost paying full-fare price for the new flights and refusal to add my special meal orders. It made for a challenging journey home and I didn’t feel valued as a customer.

If my flight from Heathrow to Nairobi had not been cancelled I would’ve been in kisumu to fly back! And I have still not had my refund! So you have my cash and I’ve got nothing in return. Wonderful!

Check in process was unfamiliar. While receiving assistance the employees supervisor berated him for not walking the area. Lucky for us, he ignored her and helped us check in. Did not know about the baggage fees with economy basic and spent 450 GBP (nearly$600) just on bags for a total of less than 2 hours flying time (50 minutes one way) on a round trip lasting less than 3 days. Customers check their own bags at kiosk and place on conveyor themselves. No reason for such an high cost of checking bags when customers do half the work. Some destinations it’s unavoidable, but will definitely seek other airlines before British Airways for future travel. Astronomically high price for bags. Our first experience flying British Airways and very, very disappointed. Completely overpriced for the services we received.

perhaps eye contact with the cabin crew, instead of abruptness and an impatience to serve.

Not great, took my carry on case outbound as overhead was full . This cause me to miss my train connection since I had to go to baggage claim. Then on my return flight they tried to take it again and flight was delayed over an hour. I chose BA because the service is usually better that easy jet etc but these days I am not so sure.

Very poor, they didn't want to attend to me until I missed my flight, my bags are missing

It was ok but not at a business class standard No entertainment system available which is poor for a 3+ hour journey Food was ok and service was good though

My ticket was cancelled unannounced and I was left stranded in the air port

Some of the crew weren't really nice. The seats were uncomfortable. Absolutely no entertainment system at all. The pilot was good though and completed the trip in a shorter time than expected which was great for me.

My flight to rochester got cancelled and they booked a hotel for me which isn’t good at all. And they said i will be a standby for next day flight so they still not sure which is horrible cause i have a lot of arrangements. I don’t think i will book with this airline again

The experience is really poor. It doesn’t feel like You are flying business class. The saving point for them is crew was really good

Superb staff, ingenious seating in Club class. Superb food and service. Loading and unloading. Ample cabin overhead luggage space. But the earphone socket was damaged and did not give binaural audio. Very hard to follow a film over the engine noise. Nor could I get to play Sudoku for want of instructions.
