On Thursday 20th October 2011, I am booked to fly on BA's NBO-LHR, which leaves NBO at 23:15.

On that day, I will actually be coming from MBA - there is a Fly540 flight which lands at NBO at 4:30pm and a later one at 10pm. I don't particuarly want to get the earlier one and hang around NBO for 6-7 hours. If I got the one which lands at 10pm, would this allow me enough time to transit?

According to the OAG, the minimum connecting time in NBO is 1 hour for a domestic to international connection, so you should be O.K. if everything is running smoothly.

Good luck!

NBO is not that big, so the actual getting from A to B is not the issue. I would be more worried about the transit from the domestic area to international, and also clearing security again. Also, a slight delay in leaving MBA might make this connection impossible. If you really had to be on the plane to LHR you might want to consider hiring a taxi and getting dinner at one of the restaurants on the road between the city and the airport, e.g. if my memory serves me well, Carnivore.

Quoting yeogeo (Reply 1):

But that's based on the assumption that you're through-checked and don't have to collect/recheck luggage etc. Accounting for that, then I would say no.

Have you considered KQ? Even if it's more expensive it could be worth it for a flight timed between the two.
