connection question through nbo....from dxb to jro

Hey all got a question.... If I fly into NBO on EMirates, and connect to Kenya airways flight to JRO - will I have to pass through customs and passport control?? We will have carry-on luggage and be in business class.

How about a Kenya airways flight all the way through from DXB-NBO-JRO? Would that be clear of all passport control etc

Thank you,

Mark

If your flights are booked separately then you will have to clear customs as you will checking in again with KQ to go to JRO. If yout tix is all way through then you will just be in transit so won't need to do that.

Thanks - that makes sense - I will need the boarding pass.... Seems it might be best just to fly KQ all the way through.....

Mark, you will not need to clear customs and immigration. When you check in for your Emirates flight, show them your Kenya Airways booking, and they will be able to check your bags all the way through to JRO. This is known as interlining. When you arrive in Nairobi, go to the KQ Business class lounge where they will print your boarding pass for the NBO JRO flight, and show them your luggage tags, which they will then ensure you bags make the flight.

If flying KQ all the way, they will issue boarding passes all the way through.

KQ business class from DXB NBO is not all that when compared to EK.

Thank you. Nice to know they have an interline agreement - that does help, though we are planning on traveling light.....carry on only.

Yes EK has a very nice Bus Class and it would actually be cheaper to book it as it is part of a larger itinerary and therefore the DXB-NBO portion would be almost nothing....

If you wish a pleasant flight, use Emirates. On deplaning at NBO, just go to the transfer desk (or business lounge if there is one) for boarding pass for ongoing, if it wasn't provided when initially boarding Emirates at the beginning.

Your ongoing flight from NBO to JRO is on Precision Air/PW (code share w/ KQ)
