If you’re in Toronto (YYZ) or Montreal (YUL) — or can position easily to either of these cities — there is an excellent flight deal to Nairobi (NBO) in business class for under $2,000 round-trip.

Let’s take a look!

Fare Deal — The Details

This deal is operated by Turkish Airlines between Toronto or Montreal and Nairobi, Kenya. Each leg includes a stop in Istanbul (IST). The long-haul legs between Canada and Istanbul are on the Boeing 777 and Airbus A330, which offer lie-flat seating, while some flights from Istanbul to Nairobi are operated on the Boeing 737.

Kenya also recently dropped visa requirements, so all travelers (regardless of nationality) can visit the country visa-free starting in January 2024.

This deal is especially sweetened when you consider that similar flights from the U.S. cost nearly $4,000 round-trip. Given the favorable exchange rate between Canadian Dollars and the U.S. Dollar, you’ll save close to $2,000 by flying from a Canadian airport.

You can play around with some dates on Google Flights and then book directly through the airline or an online travel agency (OTA) such as Expedia or Priceline.

  • Class: Business Class
  • Route: Toronto (YYZ) and Montreal (YUL) to Nairobi (NBO)
  • Dates: Select dates between January and July 2024
  • Rates: As low as $1,934 round-trip

Hot Tip:

How to Book

The cheapest availability can be found throughout the first half of 2024, though you may find under-$2,000 tickets next fall. Either way, finding travel dates that work for you shouldn’t be too difficult.

After selecting flights, you should book your ticket with a credit card that rewards for flights or general travel purchases. Some of our favorites at Upgraded Points include:

Final Thoughts

This is an excellent deal, especially considering how expensive similar business class flights are from U.S. hubs like New York (JFK) or Boston (BOS) to Kenya. You can save thousands of dollars and fly in style by finding cheap positioning flights to Canada. But if you’re interested, you’d better book before this deal is gone!
