Flights into Kenya
If you are looking for a cheap flight to East Africa, you might want to consider going into Nairobi, Kenya, instead of Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA). In the past, the cheapest airlines were Kenya Airways, which had departures from London, and Ethiopian Airways which stopped in Addis Ababa and continued to KIA.
With tourism remaining strong, there was a recent announcement today that Virgin Atlantic Airways will start daily flights from London to Kenya this June 2007. If you are going down to either Kenya or Tanzania are looking for a camping safari or to climb Kilimanjaro, you might want to consider this airline.
Fortunately, this means more competition among the few airlines, which will hopefully drive the prices down. And I bet they will have some affordable cheap deals for the first few flights to Kenya in June.
