October 30, 2019: Regional low-cost carrier Jambojet will fly to Kigali, Rwanda, and Mogadishu, Somalia to officially join the tight competition on these two routes. The Nairobi-Mogadishu route will operate from November 24. The one-hour Nairobi-Kigali route will begin on November 25.
“Our entry into the two markets is part of our regional expansion programme and brings to three the total number of routes we operate in the continent with the exception of those we fly to on behalf of Kenya Airways,” said Allan Kilavuka, chief executive officer, Jambojet.
Jambojet currently flies to five local destinations namely Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret and one regional destination - Entebbe, Uganda from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi, Kenya.
Recently, Jambojet acquired a brand new De Havilland Dash 8 -Q400 aircraft, a first of four aircraft that are expected this year, to boost the airline's capacity as it looks to soar into more regional destinations.
The no-frills airline, launched in April 2014 is a subsidiary of Kenya Airways.
