Jambo Jet flies 2.5 million passengers in four years

NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 27 – Regional low-cost carrier, Jambojet has flown 2.5 million passengers in four years of operations.

The airline that started its operations in April 2014, with only four destinations has grown to seven, including Entebbe, Uganda, which is the carrier’s first international destination.

The airline reached its 1 million passengers milestone in February 2016.

The low cost airline operates a total of 424 monthly flights from its hub at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, of which 248 flights are to the coastal destinations of Mombasa, Ukunda and Malindi.

As part of celebrating the milestone, the airline will have a 72-hour special fare of Sh3,000 one-way for 7,000 seats to all its Kenyan destinations.

“This is a major milestone for us, being one of the youngest carriers on the continent to hit such a breakthrough is great. Our aim is to keep fares affordable making it a reality being part of the dream for many to fly,” Jambojet CEO, Willem Hondius said.

The offer will see customers pay Sh3,000, one-way, to all local destinations which is close to a 35 percent discount on its lowest fare which is usually Sh4,500.

The 72-hour promotion will start on August 28, 2018 until August 30, 2018, or when all 7,000 seats are sold out.
