Jambojet to increase number of flights to Mombasa, Malindi and Diani
Regional low-cost carrier, Jambojet is scheduled to increase its frequencies to the Coastal towns of Mombasa, Ukunda (Diani)) and Malindi in the month of August, 2019.
The airline, which was recently awarded the coveted IATA Operational Safety Audit registration, will operate 48 weekly flights to Mombasa up from the current 40. Ukunda and Malindi will have three additional weekly flights moving the frequency to twice daily.
Jambojet CEO, Mr. Allan Kilavuka said, “August is a peak season, which means increased numbers of passengers are flying to our various coastal destinations. We are responding to our customers’ demands for these additional frequencies in line with our core promise of providing convenience, safety and reliability in our operations. The increased number of flights will offer our customers even more flexibility and flight variety to travel to these destinations”.
The additional frequencies will see the airline offer an extra 23% seat capacity to the Coastal destinations. Kisumu, Eldoret and Entebbe will retain at 21, 20 and 10 weekly flights respectively. This comes merely weeks after the carrier obtained IATA’s certificate in Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Registration, making it the only country flight operator to hold the IOSA registration. When Jambojet got the certification, Jambojet CEO Mr. Allan Kilavuka had this to say, “Safety is a principal requisite in our industry. Our customers need the assurance that they can travel comfortably, affordably and securely to any of our destinations. This registration is a testament to the effort we have put into ensuring the best operational and efficiency standards as a growing regional airline”.
The certification was awarded after Jambojet completed Jambojet completed a thorough audit of its operations and process which involved eight functional and operational areas such as organisation and management systems, flight operations, operational control, flight dispatch, aircraft engineering and maintenance, cabin operations, ground handling operations, and security management.
Jambojet is therefore not only an affordable way to fly within the country, but also a flight partner that can be trusted to take care of passenger safety at an International level. Jambojet also has flights to Kisumu and Eldoret in addition to the coastal destinations of Mombasa, Malindi and Diani.
