Airtel Kenya contact us via Facebook, Twitter, email, find shop, download Airtel care app

Want to reach Airtel customer care? It is easy to do. You can just dial 100 on your phone to speak to one of their agents during business hours.

In this post, however, I am going to show you other ways to get in touch with the agents working for the mobile phone service provider.

I am going to show you how to contact Airtel Kenya via Facebook, Twitter and email.

I’m also going to show you how to use the same option under *100# to find the nearest Airtel shop or to download the Airtel care app on your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

If I wanted to reach Airtel customer care, I’d probably reach out via Twitter. I wouldn’t even bother calling them – unless I had no data bundles on my phone.

I don’t know if this is true with Airtel too. There is a time I observed that reaching out to customer support (Safaricom) via Twitter was better than calling their customer care number (100) and having to spend minute after minute on hold.

Reaching out to them via Twitter (and sharing your phone number in the tweet) resulted in them calling me back almost immediately.

And yes, I’ve contacted Airtel Kenya by making a free call to the number 100 a few times over the years. All I can say is that the wait times aren’t that bad.
