Kenya Airways was established in 1977 after the collapse of East African Airways. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, adding to its fleet of aircraft, going on to be voted Best African Airline in 1999, 2000 and 2001. In 2004 they took delivery of their first Boeing 777 and continued to scoop awards for their in-flight magazines as well as best domestic airline. Today Kenya Airways is a SkyTeam member and offers flights to European and American destinations as well as those across Africa. It continues to expand its fleet of aircraft and accrue accolades for its Business Class in-flight service.
Kenya Airways offer a choice of check-in options. Traditional check-in is available at the airport from 3 hours and up to 2 hours before international flight departures and from 2 hours up to 1 hour before the departure of domestic flights. If you want to jump the queues, choose your seats and print your boarding pass before you depart, Kenya Airways also offer an online check-in service that you can access from 30 hours up to 3 hours before your flight is due to take-off.
As with all carriers, there are strict conditions when it comes to how much luggage you can take on a flight depending on whether the flight is international or domestic and economy or business class.
Always check with the airline before you travel. For up to date information on baggage allowance and charges, go to the Kenya Airways website.
