Flights to Kilimanjaro
Flights to Kilimanjaro : Finding a flight to Kilimanjaro is not an easy task as there are very few flights to this area despite it being and international Airport. But here we shall look at the safe and affordable flights and factors to consider while booking..
The international code or IATA code is JRO. Southwest of the Kilimanjaro is where the airport is located with Arusha and Moshi and nearest towns. There are both about 45 mins to the hiking points of Kilimanjaro and most hikers sleep here.
There is a local airstrip in Arusha but this receives only local flights and connects with Kenya. The Kilimanjaro airport receives no flight from the UK and the US. There is a KLM flight to Kilimanjaro and this is the most commonly used. So you will need to connect to Amsterdam and then Kilimanjaro.
This flight departs Amsterdam around 10:00am every day and arrives at Kilimanjaro International Airport around 20:30pm the same day.
The other alternative more so for the people in the UK and the US is to take either Kenya airways to Nairobi or Ethiopian Airlines to Addis Ababa and here you will get a connecting flight to Kilimanjaro. This is strenuous but it is an option also.
The British Airways flight to Nairobi is another option but this flight tends to be expensive. The other airlines will also do the same, either connect you from Dar esSalaam or Nairobi or Entebbe and you connect to Kilimanjaro is using local airlines otherwise the only best international option to Kilimanjaro is KLM.
