Emirates Airline of Dubai has special return fare to Nairobi for passengers in its Business and Economy classes that is up for grabs till August 30, 2015 with travel valid between September 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016.
Inclusive of taxes and surcharges, the national carrier of United Arab Emirates says the fare is available subject to a minimum of two passengers.
The Business and Economy fare to Dubai starts from US$1, 270 and US$479, respectively.
While the fare to Europe is US$1, 579 and US$510 in Business and Economy Class, that to USA is US$2, 147 and US$930, in that order.
The return fare to the Indian sub-continent is US$1, 242 and US$452, says Holiday Bazaar travel agency of Nairobi that is selling the tickets.
Kenya Airways may be said to be facing some financial difficulties but it, too, says it has introduced â€˜cheaperâ€™, â€˜affordableâ€™ or â€˜discountedâ€™ fare for its travellers who book their flights at least 42 days ahead of their date of departure.
Fares, says the flag-bearer of the Republic of Kenya, get higher if the passenger purchases closer to oneâ€™s travel dates, regardless of whether flights are wide open.
This early bird special fare may be purchased through Uniglobe Let’s Go Travel agency or directly from Kenya Airways.
Since travel agents usually know what most travellers don’t, it could be advisable to consult them on available discounted fares and how one qualifies for them while before booking tickets and paying for them.
