NAIROBI, KENYA: Regional low-cost carrier Jambojet will resume operations on additional domestic routes next month as the airline looks to a gradual return to normalcy after grounding its planes for five months due to the spread of the COVID 19 coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement on Monday, the airline announced ticket bookings for Mombasa to Eldoret and Kisumu, Eldoret and Kisumu to Mombasa routes were now open, following approval from the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority.

“Customer satisfaction is at the core of our business. We continuously listen to our customers’ needs and are happy that we can now connect the Western region to the Coastal region with the introduction of these direct flights,” said Titus Oboogi, Head of Sales and Marketing, Jambojet.

The airline intends to start operating the two routes on 2nd October 2020 with an introductory fare of Sh8, 900 one way for each route.

The move will come as a relief to the airline’s employees and shareholders and comes less than a week after its parent airline Kenya Airways announced losses grew 67 per cent for the six months ended June 2020 to Sh14.3 billion largely on account of the pandemic.

The airline will operate the two routes every Friday and Sunday, with the Mombasa-Eldoret and Kisumu flight departing from Mombasa at 13.15 to arrive in Eldoret at 15.05 and in Kisumu at 15.55. The flight will depart Eldoret at 15.25, and from Kisumu at 16.15 to arrive in Mombasa at 18.05.

Jambojet says it has put in place the necessary safety and health measures recommended by the Ministry of Health to safeguard passengers.

The latest routes are in addition to six local destinations; Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa, Kisumu, and Eldoret where flights from Nairobi resumed on 15th July 2020.
