This airport is located to the North West of Kisumu and it’s currently the only airport in Kisumu County. To get here from Kisumu’s CBD is approximately thirty minutes and you would need to use the Kisumu-Busia road. It’s A little far from the main road and I would advise one to use their personal car or a cab to avoid a hectic walk. You can also use a tuktuk or a motorcycle but those would be slightly strenuous. A motorbike would cost approximately 200/= while the taxis prices would vary depending on the person you get. On a normal day it shouldn’t cost more than 700/=. When we went in, appropriate security measures were taken and our luggage was checked thoroughly. It has clean and very modern services with a nice restaurant and even a mini bar. The checking in at this airport take a relatively a short time. It’s very touch and go and after about twenty minutes you are literally done with everything. The whole place is very organized and it’s very easy to navigate through it. Most of the time I don’t find it as packed and busy like Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. The airport has really cooperative staff and they always willing and ready to help you with everything you need. Their effort made sure everything was running very smoothly and this contributed a lot to efficiency. Compared to other airports it’s quite small but this does not take away anything from it. When landing you get to enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful view of lake Victoria.The buildings here are very simple yet modern and the parking spaces easily accessible. As of now I only know of domestic flights to Nairobi and Mombasa. On arrival,your luggage takes a very short time to get to you which I also found quite convenient. Next to the airport there are hotels where you can go and get accommodation if you are new to the town. This includes: Sovereign hotel, Acacia premiere and Imperial hotel express.
