Named after Kenya’s first prime minister and president, Jomo Kenyatta International (NBO) is the country’s main airport and Eastern and Central Africa’s busiest hub. It is located in the suburb of Embakasi, approximately 9.3 miles (15km) from Nairobi’s central business district, and welcomes more than five million passengers each year.
Flights to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport arrive from airports in Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and the UK, in addition to Madagascar, Mauritius and the Seychelles.
Comprising three units that serve arrivals and departures, the airport is undergoing a major expansion project which is set to quadruple its handling capacity. Passengers are urged to be patient until construction and renovations are complete.
The airport is highly accessible due to its close proximity to the adjacent Mombasa Highway and public transport options include taxis and buses. There are also plans to build a railway link. Facilities and restaurants at Jomo Kenyatta International are limited, but once expansions are finalised these too should improve.
