Discount flight to Kilimanjaro (or) How to get to Kilimanjaro
To find cheap flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport is not an an easy job as not many airline companies are flying to JRO, the IATA codes for Kilimanjaro Airport. We have described in this brief essay how you can get to Kilimanjaro in a safe, inexpensive and convivial way! Important for UK and US audiences, this paper can also be used by Europeans and travelers from Southern Africa, Australia, Asia and South America.
to Kilimanjaro, explained! In order to get to Kilimanjaro, you must travel to Kilimanjaro International Airports (IATA is JRO). Located southwest of Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, the international airports shown on the following maps are almost equally far from the two capitals Arusha and Moshi. The majority of hikers stay the nights before their Kilimanjaro ascent in Moshi, which is about 45 minutes by car from Kilimanjaro International International airport.
Arusha can be reached, but this is a small inland airfield that only gets inland services and a few connection services from Kenya. Unfortunately, there are not many non-stop Kilimanjaro connections to JRO, nor from the United Kingdom or the United States. Cheapest and at the same time most comfortable way for most budding hikers from the northern hemisphere is to take a Kilimanjaro from Amsterdam with a straight flight to Kilimanjaro.
From Amsterdam, this daily service starts around 10:00 a.m. and reaches Kilimanjaro International at around 20:30 the same time. Often, CLM will make a deal on this route, which can be viewed here. Hikers in Europe, the UK and the US will find it easier to travel from a large nearby Amsterdam base to Amsterdam (most large European, UK and US bases have connections to Amsterdam) and then take the CLM to the JRO connection.
One of KLM's great advantages, apart from being one of the few international carriers operating to Kilimanjaro, is that they are super-efficient and problems related to luggage loss and/or delay are very unlikely. Check the KLM fares. It' also worthwhile to have a look at aircraft gensets like our own Air Network.
Regarding indirectly scheduled services to the main Africa hub airfields near Kilimanjaro International Airport, your best choice is either Kenyan Airways or Ethiopian Airways, which serve both services from the main UK and United States airfields, Europe and some southern hemispheres. The services concerned are via Nairobi (Kenya) and Addis Ababa (Ethiopia).
It is relatively simple to take a connection to Kilimanjaro International Airport from these aerodromes. The related carriers are Kenyan Airways, Precision Air and Ethiopian Airways. There are many airline companies from South Africa that will take you to Nairobi, Dar es Salaam or Addis Ababa, among them South African Airways, Kenyan Airways and Emirates.
Kilimanjaro has a new intercontinental service from Qatar via Doha to Kilimanjaro Airport. After all, Turkish Airlines is the newest company to offer non-stop services to Kilimanjaro. They fly via Istanbul, which is very good for anyone who lives in Europe or the Middle East. However, the flying time is rather unsocial, as the plane arrives at Kilimanjaro at 02:00 a.m. and departs if you return with the same carrier at 03:00 a.m.!
Rates are usually lower than other carriers, so this might be an alternative if you have a limited purse. If you arrive at 02:00 in the morning, however, all the profits from a cheap ticket will most likely be forfeited at the expense of an additional overnight stay in a nearby guesthouse, unless you want to fight Kilimanjaro with Jetlag and lack of sleeping (not recommended!!!).
While there are some possibilities for flying to Kilimanjaro, all of them, with the exception of the Amsterdam KLM service, are somewhat uncomfortable.
