Kenyan LCC Jambojet seeks licences to 11 African countries

Mar 3, 2017: Kenya's low-cost airline Jambojet has applied for licences to fly to destinations in 11 African countries in renewed efforts to expand operations beyond the country, according to media reports.

The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) had last year denied Jambojet a licence for international flights. The carrier, however, now says that it has proven its mettle locally and is ready for the regional market.

The company wants to fly to Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and serve two destinations in Malawi-- Blantyre and Lilongwe.

The airline is also seeking approvals to fly to Uganda, Ethiopia, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Jambojet's parent company and national carrier Kenya Airways already serves most of these destinations. According to a Kenya Gazette notice by the aviation regulator on Friday, Jambojet is also seeking to expand its domestic routes.

The airline currently serves six destinations from its Nairobi hub -- Eldoret, Kisumu, Lamu, Malindi, Mombasa and Ukunda. The airline wants to add Vipingo, Wajir and Garissa to its network.

Jambojet is hoping to fly to some of these new routes in the second half of the year.
