Jomo Kenyatta Airport (IATA: NBO, ICAO: HKJK) is an international airport in Nairobi, the capital of and largest city in Kenya. Located in the Embakasi suburb 15 kilometres (9 mi) southeast of Nairobi’s central business district, the airport has scheduled flights to destinations in over 50 countries. The airport is named after Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya’s first president and prime minister. The airport served 6,348,635 passengers in 2014, making it the ninth-busiest airport in Africa by total passengers. It is the hub for flag carrier Kenya Airways, it’s low-cost airline Jambojet, as well as Fly540 and African Express Airways.

Nairobi Airport Terminals

There are two terminals. Terminal 1 is arranged in a semi-circular orientation and is divided into four parts: 1A, 1B, 1C, and 1E are used for international arrivals and departures while terminal 1D is used for domestic departures and arrivals. Terminal 2 is used by low cost carriers. The original terminal, located on the north side of the runway, is used by the Kenya Air Force and is sometimes referred as Old Embakasi Airport.

The groundbreaking of a new passenger terminal dubbed the “Greenfield Terminal” with a capacity of 20 million passengers was held on 3 December 2013. The project included the construction of the single largest terminal in Africa and was to be completed in 2017. On March 25th, 2016, Transport secretary James Macharia announced the project was cancelled, stating high costs as the main reason. Once complete, the terminal would have had 60 check-in positions, 32 air bridges and eight remote gates. Figures from KAA indicate that the airport’s current terminal has a capacity of 2.5 million passengers but handles an average of 6.5 million passengers every year. Traffic at the airport grows at a rate of 12 percent per annum and is expected to hit the 25 million mark by 2025. It is as of yet unclear how the KAA plans to accommodate passenger growth.

Nairobi Airport Reviews

★☆☆☆☆
We had to wait 1:30 hrs to get the bags. Waited from 04:00 am to 05:30
- Javier Grandio

★★☆☆☆
No lounge for star Alliance due to fire last year (2013). Earlier you could use Kenya Airways, but not any more. No lounge even for Priority pass holders. So waiting time was not very pleasant. Internet only for 20 mins, then at cost.
- Henrik Asp

★★☆☆☆
Traffic in Nairobi always unpredictable so gauging how much time to allow getting there is problematic. The airport is shabby, the air con struggles and the Emirates "Lounge" consists of a table in the corner of the departure lounge ( where everyone sits ) with some bottles on it and some pretty disgusting looking food which is handed out if you have a boarding pass with Business Class etc. Needless to say the girl spends most of her time explaining why everyone cannot have a free drink, there is no separation of the area, all the seats are the same ( hard ) and the air co was the worst in the airport....all told a dispiriting experience and had I not have gone through all the security would have stayed outside in the main shopping area.
- Andrew Westwood

★★★☆☆
Traveled off peak time, everything was quick. Washrooms are not in good form, too few food courts and shops. The ongoing refurbishment makes the place look a bit shabby, hope there will e improvement after the completion of the upgrades.
- Joshua Magoiya Mwang

★★★★★
Terminal 5 is the best terminal at London Heathrow - good selection of shops bars etc, but over priced - a bacon sandwich and latte cost me £10. Getting through security was ver efficient and all staff i found to be very helpful
- John Dinsdale

★★☆☆☆
Traffic to airport ...unpredictable No lounge for Priority pass holders due to fire last year. So waiting time was not very pleasant at all. Kenya Airways do not give access to priority pass holders even if they are from partnering liners. Lately (over the month), for each transit my luggage got mishandled. Got my luggage 1 day after arrival to final destination. Even though each time my luggage was tagged 'PRIORITY'
- Dannisen Chellen

★☆☆☆☆
Immigration is as always a nightmare and it doensn't matter i you have an e-Visa or you do the Visa at the airport. You've to line up and depending on how many planes just arrive it can take 1 hour. In my case I was faster without Visa, than my colleague with e-visa cause my queue was shorter as we arrived the terminal.
- Meinolf

★☆☆☆☆
Reserve time to get to the airport. Traffic can be awful and depending from which part of Nairobi you are coming it can take 3 to 4 hours. Security is just before the gate and at the gate there is no toilette or any chance to buy something to drink!! So prepare before. And no, you can't take drinks with you, you've bought in the departure area. There are a lot of shops in the departure area, all the same, cigarettes, sweet stuff, alcohol, "arts". No restaurants except a kind of small bistro.
- Meinolf

★☆☆☆☆
Avoid NBO transit and especially if you boarding pas has to be issued in NBO. Very slow, long walks and buses from / to a/c. Not for young kids!
- Stephen

★★★☆☆
Mot possible to find out, where a flight leaves, you need to drive by the terminals to check, if your flight is announced there. Many security checks even on the way to the airport, much traffic, needs much time.
