Montreal to Nairobi, Kenya - $725 CAD roundtrip including taxes

Lions in Kenya

American Airlines and Kenya Airways are showing flights from Montreal to Nairobi, Kenya for $725 CAD roundtrip including taxes.

This is 42% below the typical best prices for a roundtrip flight from Montreal to Nairobi.

However, the flights do have an airport change in New York City. You essentially have 5 hours to transfer yourself between LaGuardia airport (LGA) and John F Kennedy airport (JFK).

Here are some links with info on transferring between LGA and JFK.

USA Today - How to Transfer Between JFK and LaGuardia Airports
Quora - How much time does it take to switch from JFK to LGA airport in New York?
Rick Steves - Is 4 hours adequate time to transfer from New York Laguardia to JFK?

The legs between New York City (JFK) and Nairobi (NBO) are a new route for Kenya Airways, who will be using a 787-8 Dreamliner.

To potentially find a lot more dates, here's something you can try...

1. Go to the ITA Matrix website

2. Enter the following details:

Departing from: YUL

Destination: NBO

Dates: change it to 'see calendar of lowest fares'

Departing: choose a departure date in November, January, or February. I would recommend trying a Monday, Wednesday, or Thursday.

Length of stay: 10-14 (or however many nights you're looking for. Using a range will give you a better chance)

3. Hit 'Search'

4. On the next page, you'll see a calendar.

Hopefully you'll see some dates that are $729. If not, you may want to try a different departure date. (Note: I've found that you need to start from the front page of the ITA Matrix website when trying another date, or it may not work).

Click on one of the $729 dates.



5. Now you'll see a page with a list of flight options.

Click on one of the $729 flight options (by clicking on the price)



6. Now you should be at a page that looks like this:



On this final page, you need to select everything on the page. The easiest way to do this in your browser is by hitting CTL-A.

Once you have everything selected, hit CTL-C to copy.

7. Now go to a website called Book With Matrix

On this website, click on the bar where it says: 'Paste (CTL-V) your Matrix Itinerary Here'

Hit CTL-V to paste your itinerary.

8. Book With Matrix should now attempt to show you somewhere that you can book this flight on these dates.

Be aware that certain sites that they may send you to, such as Priceline, are in $USD.
