Regional low-cost carrier Jambojet has started selling flight tickets to Kigali and Mogadishu in anticipation for the inaugural flights in November.
The airline seeks to enable more passengers to fly affordably and reliably from its hub in Nairobi to the two destinations.
The entry into the Kigali route makes Jambojet the only low-cost airline to operate the route from Nairobi.
“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.
Customers can book through all existing distribution channels including website, www.jambojet.com, sales offices, call center and travel agents. The airline will fly once daily to the two destinations.
