Hi,

You must be flying with Thomson?

There is a departure tax from Kenya, it is a form of Airport / flight tax, all countries have airport, etc taxes that are included in the cost of your plane ticket. The UK has lots of them as you can see if you look at the breakdown of the price of your ticket between flight and taxes. Departure tax is included in the ticket price for everyone except Thomson passengers.

Around 3 years ago Thomson decided to surreptitiously put their prices up by making their passengers pay Departure Tax directly in person at the airport (bet they didn't reduce their prices by the amount passed on, and it would also seem that the extra the passengers had to pay was the Kenyan Government;s fault not Thomson's)

This is one of the things that gets my back up with "package" holidays, not everything is included in the packages that you would expect such as luggage, meals, drinks and now departure tax! Always compare the schedule prices, it's often competitive, and a lot more flexible.
