Kenya ranked in position 33 with an average flight cost of US $11.64 per 100 km of travel, compared to position 29 in last year’s ranking, according to the latest figures by online travel agency Kiwi.com.

This compares with the most affordable country, Malaysia, averaging a flight cost of $4.18 per 100 km of travel, while Belgium was found to be 13 times higher at $54.63 per 100 km of travel.

Kiwi.com calculates which countries offer the best value flights, factoring in both short haul and long haul journeys, looking at annual ranking detailing the cost of air travel in 80 countries.

The Flight Price Index, also tracks the changes in the industry, providing a compelling insight into the fluctuating price of air travel around the world.

The agency also analyzed over a million flights to find an average price of short-haul and long-haul flights on low cost and full service airlines from each of the countries.

Domestic flights were calculated by finding an average airfare from the country’s capital to up to five major cities within the country, or to a major city nearby in a neighboring country when no domestic flights were available.

The price of international travel was calculated based on flights from all international airports within the country, to several international hubs. All flights were checked for the same dates of travel taking into account high and low seasons.
