What is an Airtel online recharge?

An Airtel top-up is the process of buying more credit so a prepaid phone on the Airtel network can be used to make calls, send texts and access data. Airtime can be bought from shops in the form of a pin number or voucher. However, that’s not always convenient if the shops are closed or far away.

Our Airtel top-up service allows the friends and family of anyone living, working or travelling in Kenya to send airtime directly to their phones. That means they can stay connected without having to top-up themselves.

How does the Airtel Kenya top-up process work?

Sending Airtel airtime top-ups to friends and family in Kenya is easy:

  1. Visit our homepage and select Kenya from the 'choose a country to send to' dropdown list
  2. Select ‘Airtime Top up’ as the preferred service and click 'Continue'
  3. Enter the recipient’s phone number
  4. Choose how much airtime you want to send
  5. Pay online

The top-up will be made in minutes, and both you and the recipient will receive SMS confirmation once the transfer is complete.

You can use a smartphone, tablet or PC to send airtime to a loved one’s Airtel phone from wherever you are. Have any questions? Then take a look at our airtime top-up FAQs.
