There might be a Kenya Airways NBO-SEZ flight. Thomas Cook Airlines has also one flight Mombasa. However when trying to find a flight for October 12th 2004, travelgalileo proposes only BA1065. Amadeus doesn't show that flight. Probably Galileo hasn't updated. Sabre also shows the BA flight.

In Ocober, Kenya Airways (KQ) operates an NBO-SEZ flight on Thursdays and Sundays, and Air Seychelles (HM) operates JNB-SEZ flights on Monday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. Go to a good travel site, to the respective airline, or a travel agent for bookings.

Last year we did MRU-JNB on Air Mautitius, and even biz class tix weren't particularly expensive. Got them through ITN.net, which isn't a discounter particularly.

Sabre, Galileo and Amadeus are reservation systems and through their web sites you can look for the airlines schedules or availability in the different travel classes.

you could use some of your points to fly emirates/ sri lankan through ba points or collect some ba flights on a skywards card and use them - redemption vs cost of tickets is very good (imho) on this sector

My indications show KQ450 operates NBO - SEZ Thursdays, Sundays (3:30, 737-700,) and that Condor flies Mondays from MBA with a 767.

Let's Go Travel in Nairobi might be a resource to work up flights and probably save money...

It has been a while since I used them, but they've been around since 1979 and have a decent reputation.
