Flights to Nairobi with Emirates land at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, often referred to as JKIA, located 15 kilometers southeast of Nairobi city center.

Matatus—privately hired minibuses favored by Kenyans—are everywhere, but they are not recommended for first-time visitors arriving on Nairobi flights.
