Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines is currently selling cheap tickets for its economy class services to Nairobi, Kenya departing from Oslo, Paris, and Rome. You can book your round-trip with a layover in Istanbul at prices starting around €347 (~NOK 3,731) from Oslo. Flights from Paris and Rome are more expensive, costing €430 – still a great price though, and maybe it’s cheaper for you to travel to Paris/Rome than to Oslo. All prices include board service and 30 kg of luggage. You will find the fares from Oslo until December 2021, and from Paris and Rome until March 2022.
Turkish Airlines allows you to modify your booking as often as you want, but you’ll have to pay the fare difference.
If you book through an OTA, you can even get the price down to €320 (~NOK 3,441).
You would first fly to Istanbul, before then flying to Nairobi on a Boeing 737. You’ll be served hot meals on both flights, enjoy in-seat in-flight entertainment, and will be able to take 30 kg of luggage with you.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, tickets will be sold until August 24, 2021. There is a minimum stay requirement of three days (or a Sunday). The maximum you can visit is for three months. You need to start your trip before March 31, 2021 (or by December 2021 from Oslo).
Google Flights (instructions) will help you find cheap connections, as will our own calendar above, which will then redirect you to Turkish Airlines’ booking site or to our Travel-Dealz flight search, where you can save roughly €25 by booking on an OTA.
The flights are issued in booking class U – a booking class that only Turkish Airlines’ own program gives miles for (roughly 2,200 miles).
