Thursday, 17 Jul 2014

The World Airline Awards are regarded as a benchmark on passenger satisfaction levels for airlines throughout the world - delivering a unique survey format based on analysis of business and leisure travelers, across all cabin travel types (First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy class passengers).The survey’s transparency and global coverage distinguish the awards as a most prestigious and respected quality recognition for the industry.

Barely three months since it started operations, Jambojet continued its ascendancy being feted as the fourth best low-cost airline in Africa after such big names as Mango, Fastjet and Kulula. This award recognizes the front-line budget airline service that Jambojet has pioneered and is providing in Kenya by making it possible for more people to fly. The latest entrant in Kenya’s aviation sector, Jambojet flies between Nairobi and the key Kenyan cities of Mombasa, Kisumu and Eldoret, operating a fleet of three Boeing 737-300. 

We are happy to have been accorded this prestigious and respected rank in Africa. This is a valuable endorsement of our business model as we continue to realize our vision of offering travelers the services of a true low cost low fare airline,” said Willem Hondius, Jambojet CEO.
Although low-cost airlines in East Africa have had a hard time surviving in the past, Jambojet will strive to be the exception as we seek to actualize our vision of making flying possible for everyone”, affirmed Mr. Hondius.

In the past month, Jambojet has increased the frequency on its route to Eldoret to enable passengers to travel twice daily via a timely and affordable means.
