Transferring at Nairobi Airport

I will be flying to NBO from Tanzania on one ticket and flying British Airways on another ticket. The flights allow me three hours connecting time. Do I have to enter Kenya or can I find a British Airways agent in the transit side of the airport to check into my flight to LHR?

In Tanzania, ask to have your bags checked all the way through to you final destination (I am assuming LHR). On arrival at NBO go to the transfer desk (you will see one with a BA sign among others). If the BA staff are not there, they will be called up. Make sure they know your bags are checked all the way through, and they take the luggage tag details to ensure they are loaded on the BA flight.

its easy to locate BA at JKIA but you also need their number to call,in Nairobi they also relocated their office and they always advise calling only.
