We leave for our trip to Tanzania and Rwanda this Saturday (2/2/08)and fly through Nairobi (NBO) on 3 seperate occasions, the first being Monday Feb 4th. We are not leaving the airport and are just transiting through. With the recent surge in violence we are extremely concerned about just transiting through the airport. Any info that anyone has is greatly appreciated.
Our last flight returns via NBO on Feb 21st and we have to spend 15+ hours in the airport. originally we were planning on taking a day tour but with recent events we've canceled that. We tried to change our return flight to go from Dar to Paris instead of Nairobi to Paris. Air France is only willing to waive the change fee (200 USD) and will still charge us $450 USD per person to change each ticket. Has anyone had any luck with changing Air France flights because of the unrest? They are extremely difficult to deal with.
Thanks in advance for any input.
