Kenya Airlines Pride Lounge Nairobi (NBO) Review

Nairobi Airport suffered substantial damage in a major fire in 2013 and since then many premium facilities have been missing. Kenya Airways has actually started fixing that now with the newly-opened Pride Lounge.

The Pride Lounge is the primary business class lounge for any SkyTeam Premium passengers and for SkyTeam elite members. I got access during my flights from Burundi to Nairobi and onward to Entebbe.

The lounge attendant did not feel that I deserved her attention at all – she scanned my boarding pass and returned it without a word.

The lounge itself feels very new and the whole layout and interior design feels modern and excellent.

The lounge has a 270-degree view at the end of the apron and on to Mombasa Road.

When I visited in the late afternoon, there were a handful of passengers in the lounge. I connected to the internet and it worked well, although slow.

While I was hungry, I did not like the food options much. There was hot lunch food but I just couldn’t agree on the quality. It was very well-presented though, as was the selection of drinks.

There are plenty of TV monitors and even some tethered iPads to use.

For Africa, this is an excellent lounge that competes well with the South African Airlines Business Class Lounge in Johannesburg and the Ethiopian Airlines Business Class Lounge in Addis.

Outside of the continent, this would just be an OK lounge…
