NBO Gate Connections DISCUSSION

Hello. I have a 20 hour transit wait at NBO onwards to Tanzania. Can I request Kenya Air to tag my bag to NBO only, then get a hotel and retag assuming my passport is good for Kenya entry?
Hi- we’re arriving to NBO on British Airlines (American Passport holders) and will be switching to Rwanda Air to fly to KGL. Will we need a negative covid test to switch planes within NBO airport?
I am travelling nyc - nbo - entebbe with kenya airways all out of terminal 1 and have only 1 hr to connect. Is this doable?
Thank you
Hi Beatriz, Yes this is possible to transit within the 1hr.
First your luggage has to be tagged to final destination(entebe) then have your boarding pass electronically printed from NYC
The only challenge i can anticipate would be at the one security which you may find lengthy queues
I am flying into Nairobi, Kenya (NBO) on June 16th. I arrive at Terminal 1E, and have to go to Terminal 1A for a flight to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania (JRO). Is there transportation from Terminal 1E to Terminal 1A?

Can you walk from Terminal 1E to Terminal 1A?
Hi, Yes you can walk inside terminal without getting out only if your luggage is tagged to final destination.IF not, you will need to get transit visa,get luggage,check out of 1E check in to 1A.

I am Kenya Airlines from Cape Town through Nairobi then JFK. I only have a 50 minute lay over. Will that be enough time? The arrival and the departure gate are both from Terminal 1A
Does my baggage go through directly with Kenya airlines?
thank you
50minutes can be enough if your luggage has been tagged through to final destination.Both arrival gate and transit gate are in same terminal 1A, this should be possible.

we are flying into Nairobi on Emirates and then changing planes to Rwanda Air to Rwanda. Will we have to go through customs in Nairobi?
I arrive with a domestic from Mombasa at Nairobi.
2,5 hours later depart my international to Paris with Kenya Airways.
Of course I have to go through immigration, etc...
Do I have enough time with 2,5 hours?.
Is the first flight also with Kenya Airways? If so that should be plenty of time.
Indeed both with Kenya Airways but tickets both seperately.
arrive 6:55 a.m. , depart 8:05 a.m.
enough time for transfer? KQ
customs?, bag-rechecked?, re-security?,
Are both of your flights on Kenya Airways? If so you don't have to go through passport control or do anything with your bags.
