  • We remain committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our employees and customers from the moment they arrive at the airport to the time they land at their destination. Once we resume operations, we will ensure that we continue to follow the set guidelines by the Ministry of Health, WHO, IATA and other relevant bodies.

 

What is Jambojet doing in order to limit queues and crowds?

  • We encourage all our customers to book and check-in online at jambojet.com to avoid queues at the airport. In addition, the Kenya Airports Authority has put in measures to ensure social distancing at the security screening area, check in desks and in the waiting lounges.

 

How do you keep the cabin air clean?

  • All our aircraft are fitted with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration systems that refresh the cabin air every three minutes. This ensures the air in the cabin remains fresh and clean.

 

Are face masks being offered in the aircraft?

  • It is a requirement by the Government of Kenya to have a face mask at all times when they are in public places. We encourage all customers to make arrangements for their own face masks ahead of their flight. However, in the unlikely event that a customer doesn’t have one, we shall provide you with one at a fee of Kshs 250.

 

Are children required to wear face masks?

  • It is a requirement for all passengers aged 2 years and above to have a face mask at all times when they are in public places. 

 

Do I need a COVID-19 negative certificate when traveling with Jambojet?

  • No. It is not a requirement to have a COVID-19 negative certificate while traveling to any of our local destinations. However, all passengers are required to fill in a Health Declaration form and avail it to the Port Health officials at your arrival airport. We recommend that you fill this form before coming to the airport.

 

How do I know that your aircraft cabins are safe from COVID-19?

  • As an additional safety precaution, we ensure thorough sanitization of all aircraft with industry approved detergent before and after each flight, paying extra attention to all touch prone areas.

 

How will you ensure social distance is maintained on board?

  • Aviation is a highly regulated industry and discussions are ongoing on whether it is feasible to maintain social distance onboard, especially after putting in place all the pre-flight safety protocols. Additionally, the HEPA filters in the cabin helps keep the air clean by refreshing the air every three minutes. Jambojet will therefore follow the guidelines set by the regulators and the Government on this matter.

 

Can customers bring hand sanitizers onboard your aircraft when traveling?

  • Yes. Customers can carry hand sanitizer up to 250ml on board. All other liquids must not exceed 100ml as per the industry guidelines, otherwise the liquid can only go as checked luggage in the aircraft hold.
