    Welcome to Kool Flyers

    Welcome to the Kool Flyers program, a Kenya Airways exclusive club that targets students below 22 years studying abroad. The intent of this club is to support the continued learning at overseas schools for students living in Africa.

    This is in line with Kenya Airways’ undertaking to open a world of opportunity across the continent, creating sustainable development by connecting its people and businesses within Africa and around the world.

    The Club is open to all students who fly on KQ and has a variety of benefits.
    Kool Flyer Membership makes it easy for students and parents/ guardians to plan and budget for their travel costs.

    This is because …..

    • Kool Flyer Exclusive Discounted fares remain constant throughout the year.
    • Exemption on handling fees charged to minors or young passengers travelling unaccompanied.
    • Kool Flyers are not offloaded in case of a disruption.
    • Enjoy warm and friendly service from KQ staff.
    • Parents/Guardians are also entitled to discounted fares to these destinations to visit their kids in school.
    Whilst the Kool Flyers fares may not be the cheapest when compared to some of “on the-spot” special offers on the market, they will be fixed at one low fare throughout the year, irrespective of High or Low season premiums or discounts. When viewed in this light, the fare becomes one of the most attractive offers in the market.

    Membership Conditions

    Book 3 return flights for the year in advance. Parents/Guardians are also eligible to book for their visits at the same SPECIAL Kool Flyer fare.

    Requirements for Kool Flyers Membership

    Kool Flyers Club members are also eligible to join the Flying Blue Frequent Flyer Program. They are encouraged to join because it allows them to collect Frequent Flyer miles during their trips to/from school and benefit from the program’s long list of services and offers. Unfortunately, Flying Blue Miles are not valid for the purchase of Kool Flyers Club tickets but there are other benefits and offers. Flying Blue Miles can be used for holiday tickets or even for tickets around the world on KQ/ KL/ AF or any Skyteam Partners during gap years.

    Kool Flyer Members are allowed one free change on their tickets. Should unforeseen circumstances arise a booked travel date can be changed at a fee. KQ will not accept Unaccompanied Minors and Young Passengers for flights that have transfer connections involving either an overnight stay at a transfer point, or a transfer between two airports at the connecting point. In such cases, the parent or guardian must either travel with the child or arrange for the child to be met and cared for at the transfer point. KQ recommends that in case of flights that require transfers, the connecting time should be not less than 1 hour, and not more than 5 hours to avoid any inconvenience to the Kool Flyer and facilitate a smooth handover.

    Bookings must be made at the specified KQ offices listed below. Kenya Airways has a specifically trained staff member to handle the Kool Flyers bookings.
