Toronto to Nairobi, Kenya - $676 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Lions in Kenya

American Airlines and Kenya Airways are showing flights from Toronto to Nairobi, Kenya for $735 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is 30% below the typical best prices for a roundtrip flight from Toronto to Nairobi.

However, the flights do have an airport change in New York City on the way there. You have 4 hours to transfer yourself between LaGuardia airport (LGA) and John F Kennedy airport (JFK).

Here are some links with info on transferring between LGA and JFK.

USA Today - How to Transfer Between JFK and LaGuardia Airports
Quora - How much time does it take to switch from JFK to LGA airport in New York?
Rick Steves - Is 4 hours adequate time to transfer from New York Laguardia to JFK?

The legs between New York City (JFK) and Nairobi (NBO) are a new route for Kenya Airways, who will be using a 787-8 Dreamliner.

How to find and book this deal

1. Go to Flighthub or CheapOAir

2. Search for a flight from Toronto (YYZ) to Nairobi, Kenya (NBO)

Try one of the following date combinations:

(for longer trips you can try mixing and matching the dates from different lines in the list below)

Nov 7 to Nov 21

Jan 21 to Jan 31
Jan 23 to Feb 6
Jan 30 to Feb 13

To potentially find a lot more dates, try the 'ITA Matrix' method...

1. Go to the ITA Matrix website

2. Enter the following details:

Departing from: YYZ

Destination: NBO

Dates: change it to 'see calendar of lowest fares'

Departing: choose a departure date in November, January, or February. I would recommend trying a Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

Length of stay: 10-14 (or however many nights you're looking for. Using a range will give you a better chance)

3. Hit 'Search'

4. On the next page, you'll see a calendar.

Hopefully you'll see some dates that are $738. If not, you may want to try a different departure date. (Note: I've found that you need to start from the front page of the ITA Matrix website when trying another date, or it may not work).

Click on one of the $738 dates.

5. Now you'll see a page with a list of flight options.

Click on one of the $738 flight options (by clicking on the price)

6. Now you should be at a page that looks like this:

On this final page, you need to select everything on the page. The easiest way to do this in your browser is by hitting CTL-A.

Once you have everything selected, hit CTL-C to copy.

7. Now go to a website called Book With Matrix

On this website, click on the bar where it says: 'Paste (CTL-V) your Matrix Itinerary Here'

Hit CTL-V to paste your itinerary.

8. Book With Matrix should now attempt to show you somewhere that you can book this flight on these dates.

Be aware that certain sites that they may send you to, such as Priceline, are in $USD.

- The only difference is that now the prices are even lower, and there are more dates available.

    Bought! Found (using ITA Matrix) alternate dates of Jan 3 to Feb 28, and booked directly from American Airlines by pasting data into BookWithMatrix.com (and paying via Paypal to get around US address requirement).

    I just got back from Mongolia ( http://www.yyzdeals.com/toronto-to-ulan-bator-mongolia-794-cad-roundtrip-including-taxes ). You're killing me.

    Hi Beatrice, for longer trips, you may want to try mixing and matching dates from different lines in the list of dates provided.

    Or you could try the tip that Paul provided.

    Great tip Paul, thanks! Welcome back from Mongolia. I added some info to the blog post about using ITA Matrix to potentially find more dates.
