Arrival at the airport
It takes time to complete check-in, check baggage and clear security, so we recommend arriving
at the airport as early as possible. Since some delays may be beyond our control, we recommend an arrival time at the airport of one hour and thirty minutes prior to departure when traveling within the East African region.
When traveling outside of East Africa, we recommend two hours prior to departure.
In most locations, you must be checked in:
●At least 45 minutes before scheduled departure, for flights within East Africa
●At least 60 minutes before scheduled departure, for flights to or from airports outside of
the East African Region
When arriving in Kenya from an international location, claim your checked bags at the first stop
within Kenya. and proceed through Immigrations/Customs. If you're flying internationally and
connecting to another airline, check the applicable country's Customs procedures to determine
whether checked baggage needs to be re-checked with the other airline upon arrival into that
For flights operated by another carrier, including our codeshare partners, the applicable check-in
time limit for that carrier's flight will apply.
