Jambojet sets up shop in Lamu Island
By Standard Reporter | April 29th 2016
Travelers to and from Lamu County can now conveniently book their air tickets on the island. This follows the launch of the Jambojet offices in Lamu.
The launch of the new offices comes barely a year after the low cost brand of Kenya Airways launched its maiden flight to the coastal archipelago; a renowned tourism destination.
Currently, Jambojet flies the Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 aircraft which carries 78 passengers on the Lamu route. Since the launch, the total number of passenger travelling to Lamu went up by 71% compared to the previous year.
Speaking during the launch, Jambojet CEO Willem Hondius said the addition of the sales office will go a long way in ensuring that both residents of Lamu County and the tourists who frequent the island are able to conveniently access tickets to Malindi and Nairobi.
"Beyond just enabling our customers to fly affordably, we are keen on offering convenience through our various booking platforms. One should be able to access us on phone, but still be able to reach our teams in case of any travel concerns," he further explained.
