NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 1 – Kenya Airways has signed a codeshare agreement with Jambojet for its flights to Malindi, Lamu, Ukunda and Eldoret.

Under the agreement, which takes effect August 1, 2016 Kenya Airways will put the ‘KQ’ designator code on the Jambojet flights to the mentioned destinations, allowing Kenya Airways to sell the Jambojet network to passengers coming from across the world.

“We are delighted to seal this agreement, which will allow us to enhance connectivity between the two networks. This will bring about a greater flow of both local and international travellers, and boost the number of tourists to the Coastal cities,” Jambojet CEO Willem Hondius said.

The deal coincides with a capacity optimisation strategy within the Kenya Airways group, which will make Jambojet grow its presence locally as Kenya Airways will now focus its domestic operations on Mombasa and Kisumu.

Jambojet flights will increase to 17 flights per week, creating seamless connections in both directions.

“We continuously strive to improve air access in Kenya and the region as a whole by offering seamless connectivity for travellers,” KQ Managing Director Mbuvi Ngunze said.

“Jambojet continues to be one of our key revenue generators and thus we will constantly work on strategic linkages to grow our domestic market.”

In the last two years of operation, the low-cost brand of Kenya Airways has increased numbers of routes from four to seven, increased frequency of flights due to fleet expansion and flown over one million passengers.
