Jambojet, the low-cost brand of Kenya’s national carrier Kenya Airways has added more flights to all destinations across its network ahead of the Christmas and New Year festivities.
Willem Hondius, Jambojet CEO said, “We are cognizant of the increased demand for flights during the festive season as people go on holiday or travel back home. We want to ensure that we provide our customers with value for money, greater choice as well as flexibility with the additional frequencies.”
Additional flight options are on all its routes to and from Nairobi, Eldoret, Kisumu, Lamu, Malindi, Ukunda and Mombasa.
Flights to Mombasa increase from 22 to 31 weekly; to Malindi from the current 13 to 16 weekly; and flights to Kisumu, Eldoret and Ukunda will each have a total of 20 flights per week.
In August this year, the airline effected a code-share agreement with Kenya Airways to optimize capacity and create seamless connections between the two networks.
Jambojet has been credited with promoting local tourism and enhancing economic growth in business hubs across Kenyan counties.
The number of its round trips has grown by almost one thousand for the financial year ending March 2016.
“Increased demand for domestic travel has seen Jambojet contribute 25 percent passenger growth in the domestic market since it started operations,” added Willem.
