Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), the closest airport to Arusha, is currently served by a number of international carriers including KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Ethiopian Airlines. Visitors to the southern parks, beaches or Zanzibar may also use a number of international airlines that operate Dar es Salaam International Airport (DAR). Zanzibar is served by international, charter and domestic air carriers. Besides flying to Tanzania you can fly with various airlines to Nairobi and Sky of Serengeti Safaris will arrange a suitable transfer. There are two less convenient alternatives to arriving directly into Kilimanjaro (JRO) via the daily KLM flight. British Airways offers daily flights to both Nairobi (NBO) and Dar es Salaam (DAR) where you can connect to either Kilimanjaro or Arusha to begin your safari. The British Airways flight into DAR is the most convenient alternative to KLM. Daily flights depart London (LHR) at 7.20PM and arrive at DAR at 6.55AM. From Dar there is a 9.00AM flight to the Arusha Airport (ARK) where you can catch a flight to the Serengeti in the afternoon. Alternatively, you could relax that day at one of the nice lodges in Arusha and fly out to the Serengeti early the next morning. Lastly, you may always choose a drive in / drive back safari and begin your safari immediately with a drive into either Tarangire or Manyara.The second alternative to KLM is to fly into Nairobi (NBO) on British Airways. There are two flights daily departing at LHR at either 10.25AM or 8.35PM arriving at 8.45PM or 7.25AM into NBO, respectively. There are no outbound connections to Kilimanjaro (JRO) in the late evening for the 8.45PM inbound flight, which would force you to layover in Nairobi. The flight arriving at 7.25AM is much more convenient as you could connect on a morning flight to JRO at 10.30AM on Kenya Airways.
