Nairobi airport

Jump to last reply

Has anyone flown through NBO (JKIA) as of late? Wondering if there is a lounge other than Kenya Air (for only their pax) or is it still the crazed" everyone sitting on the floor airport" I remember from 2010-- when I swore I'd never use it again.

Thats what I get for swearing. I AM going back. Africa pulls you know. So I have a 6hr wait before my trip home and with only a carryon and small pack I can check in on line 24 hrs earlier (believe it or not the new Mara Plains has wifi...not that I want it, but nice to check in!)
SO I really don't need to be there longer than 2 hrs.

Flying Biz Emirates. I'd would rather stay out of the airport central as it ruins my Africa Safari buzz I like to take home with me. Is there a lounge at all for biz and is it worth the bother - or as crazy as the terminals?

I can get a day room at a nearish hotel that I will use the night I fly "IN" to begin; but only for 2-3 hours, though to me a shower and freshen up before return to states on a plane might be worth it. LONG ride...I honestly dread this airport esp traveling alone. Hoping the fire made them renovate with some thought.


Thanks for any updates.
