Kenya Airlines transfer Domestic to International in Nairobi

Hi,

I'm traveling June 2nd from Kisumu to Johannesburg on Kenya Air. connecting thru Nairobi. I have 1:20 between flights. Does anyone know if there is any problem with Kenya Air checking a bag all the way through? thanks

Hi,

As you are flying with KQ your bags are checked all the way through, and you should get both your boarding cards, so all you have to do is walk straight out of Domestic, turn right, a couple of minutes walk, go through the scanner into the International terminal. Fill in your departure card and go through passport control / Immigration.(almost straight in front of you)

You might have a couple of minutes queue at the scanners and Immigration should normally be less than 15 or 20 minutes, (though I've been straight through with no queue a couple of times, and once I had to queue 40 minutes)
