Jambojet has increased the number of flights on its route between Nairobi and Eldoret, in response to strong passenger demand.
On this route, Jambojet will now offer up to three daily return flights with effect from 24thJuly 2017.
The budget airline will have 18 flights per week from the current 13 flights on this strategic route, providing passenger’s added flexibility to manage their diaries – a particularly important consideration for business travellers who travel this route frequently.
“By offering a total of 18 flights per week to and from Eldoret, Jambojet will have an additional 780 seats, offering passengers more convenient travel options – whether for business or leisure – at affordable fares,” said Jambojet CEO Willem Hondius.
“The early afternoon flights will enhance connectivity in the region as well as facilitate swift and convenient movement to and from the home of champions,” he expounded.
The newly introduced afternoon flights will be a major boost for the airline on a route that has predominantly had morning and evening flights across all airlines.
In the new arrangement, Jambojet will be the only airline on the Eldoret route with an early afternoon flight on Sunday departing from Eldoret to Nairobi at 1300hrs.
Currently, Jambojet operates 73 flights per week to on its domestic routes from Nairobi to Mombasa, Eldoret, Kisumu, Malindi and Ukunda (Diani). It set a regional record earlier on this year by handling over two million customers in less than three years of operation. This number has continued to grow as more Kenyans and foreigners appreciate the benefits of low cost flying.
Last year Jambojet signed a codeshare agreement with Kenya Airways for its flights to Malindi, Ukunda (Diani) and Eldoret. Under the agreement, Kenya Airways is able to sell the Jambojet network to passengers coming from all their destinations across the world. The zero frills airline, which recently acquired a brand new Bombardier Dash 8 Q400 next generation aircraft to complement its existing fleet, has also indicated that they will soon be launching the regional routes.
