  • My Refunds

    You may be eligible for a refund on unused or partially unused Kenya Airways tickets, depending on the type of ticket you purchased:

    • Taxes, fees and charges:

      Applicable taxes, fees and charges imposed by government or other authority, or by the operator of an airport, shall be payable by you. At the time you purchase your Ticket, you will be advised of taxes, fees and charges not included in the fare, most of which will normally be shown separately on the Ticket. The taxes, fees and charges imposed on air travel are constantly changing and can be imposed after the date of Ticket issuance. If there is an increase in a tax, fee or charge shown on the Ticket, you will be obliged to pay it. Likewise, if a new tax, fee or charge is imposed even after Ticket issuance, you will be obliged to pay it. Similarly, in the event any taxes, fees or charges which you have paid to us at the time of Ticket issuance are abolished or reduced such that they no longer apply to you, or a lesser amount is due, you will be entitled to claim a refund. In addition should the Passenger not travel on a flight and they are holding a refundable or a non refundable ticket they are equally to benefit from a refund of said applicable taxes, charges and other fees.
