Outbound travel out of Dubai does not see a lot of sales and discounts. You should read my earlier post – Why Emirates sale doesn’t mean much?
Therefore, I am always excited when I see great airfares from Dubai. Especially, in business class. Kenya Airways – the flagship airline of Kenya – is offering awesome fares from Dubai to South Africa. The fares start from $650+ (round-trip). This can be 50%-75% lower than non-stop options.
The calendar is pretty much open.
Business Travel on Kenya Airways at Economy Prices
You can choose to travel either to Johannesburg or Cape Town. Obviously, both itineraries have a stopover in Nairobi. However, Nairobi is almost on the travel route from Dubai to South Africa. Therefore, there is minimal additional flying time added.
Most importantly, you get lie-flat seats on both legs.
The stopover at Nairobi can range from 1-hour 15 minutes to almost 24 hours. Stopover time also varies by date so choose carefully.
This is a sample itinerary to Johannesburg (Google flight link)
As you can see above, there is flexibility in choosing your stopover at Nairobi.
Kenya Airways website also previews a surprise sale on June 27, 2019.
I am not sure if the Dubai offer will last till then. Therefore, if you want to make travel plans, there is no better time than today.
Tip hat to YHBU.
