Jambojet increases flight frequencies across all routes


1 min read

Kenya’s Jambojet has increased flight frequencies across all of its routes countrywide.

In a statement the airline said that it has increased its flights from Nairobi to Mombasa from 22 flights to 39 flights per week, while the Kisumu route will now have twenty flights per week up from the previous 14 flights per week.

Jambojet CEO, Willem Hondius said: “We have increased our frequency to not only address the demand for our service across the various routes but to also offer flexibility and flight variety to our customers. We will be offering up to six flights a day to Mombasa and will be introducing a 07h00am flight for the businessman who requires a full day in Mombasa.”

The new development comes barely a week after Jambojet phased out the Boeing 737 which had been leased from Kenya Airways. The airline will now operate its three newly acquired Dash 8 Q400 propeller powered aircrafts which makes the fleet arguably the youngest fleet globally.

The budget airline will now have 29 additional flights per week from the current 73 flights across its network.

The rapidly expanding Eldoret and Kisumu routes will now also see the introduction of an afternoon flight daily, while Ukunda will get four additional flights respectively. In total, the coastal route will be having 62 flights per week.
