Arrival and Departure Transfers

arr depShould your flight be delayed or cancelled, please inform Mr. Kenneth Kimbui (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) as soon as possible to enable us make the necessary arrangements.

There will be a Meet and Greet Desk at Kilimanjaro International Airport and staff to man it on a 24-hour basis. The desk will be branded with "JUDICIAL DIALOGUE" signage easily recognizable by participants on their arrival.

Airport to hotel transfers will be provided to all those travelling to Arusha for the Dialogue. This will be on a shared basis as, those arriving on the same flights will be transferred together, which would also provide room for pre-dialogue networking.

Similarly on departure, participants will be picked up from Ngurdoto Mountain Lodge two and half hours prior to their flight departure time and transferred to the airport. Again, these will be provided on shared basis and delegates departing on the same flights will be transferred together. A departure schedule will be distributed to participants in good time. Unlike on arrival where there will be a Meet and Greet Desk, on departure there will be staff to assist in case of missed flights, or any other problems that may arise while participants are checking in. 

For sponsored participants, the Court will meet all the costs of your travel to the Dialogue by providing an economy class return ticket.

For sponsored participants, the Court will pay the accommodation costs on a bed and breakfast basis and they will be provided 50% of the United Nations Rate applicable for Arusha for November 2015 to cater for their dinner. Participants will be responsible for paying for their personal costs such as laundry, minibar expenses etc. Self-sponsored participants who wish to stay in other hotels should inform Mr Kenneth Kimbui. Lunch will be provided to all participants.

Travel itineraries and air tickets will be sent out to all sponsored participants. Should participants wish to buy their own tickets or incur any other expenditure relating to their air tickets, kindly consult Mr Kenneth Kimbui for advice.

 Travellers from the United States and Canada are advised to take KLM Dutch Airlines (KL) as it code shares with Delta (DL) & Air Canada (AC). Alternatively, Qatar Airways (QR) could be the cheapest option, and in some cases, Ethiopian Airlines (ET) would be ideal.

  • KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL), code sharing with Air France (AF) has daily flights from Amsterdam to JRO. This would be the easiest connection from Europe. Alternatively, travellers from Europe can take Turkish Airlines which lands at JRO via Istanbul. However, Ethiopian Airlines (ET) and Qatar Airways (QR) could be the cheaper options.
  • Passengers from South America are advised to take either KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KL) code sharing with Air France (AF), Qatar Airways (QR), Turkish Airlines (TK), or Ethiopian Airlines (ET).
