Jambojet readies for regional expansion


1 min read

Kenyan low cost carrier, Jambojet has acquired a new aircraft as it readies to kick of its regional expansion plans early next year.

The Bombadier plane is leased to the airline by Danish firm Nordic Aviation Capital bringing the airline’s total fleet to four and offering it the flexibility to increase flights as well as open regional routes.

Jambojet chief executive officer Willem Hondius said with the growth in passengers, the airline is confident its expansion plans will work as more people adopt the low cost flying model.

“Basically, we are matching our expansion agenda with the right equipment to ensure that we deliver the best service to our growing customer base,” Mr Hondius said.

Jambojet currently flies to Mombasa, Ukunda, Malindi, Kisumu and Eldoret from its Nairobi base and intends to fly to Uganda and Tanzania in the first quarter of 2018 with plans to expand as demand rises. The airline has also applied for operating licenses in Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Ethiopia and the DRC.
