Low-cost carrier, Jambojet, is seeking approval to expand its cargo destinations, as well as operate direct flights between cities in Kenya without stopping at its hub in Nairobi.
If approved, the carrier wants to fly directly from Mombasa to Kisumu and from Kisumu to Eldoret- Malindi-Lamu.
In a gazette notice dated May 29, Jambojet expressed interests to vary its licence so that it could also enter into cargo business.
Early this month, the airline filed a request with the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), seeking to fly more domestic and international routes. In the filing, the airline revealed plans to operate an additional hub at Mombasa’s Moi International Airport (MIA), where it will operate nine new local routes and 12 international routes.
Jambojet is a Kenyan low-cost carrier that started operating in 2014. It is a subsidiary of Kenya Airways and is headquartered in Nairobi. It flies to Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa, Kisumu, Kigali and Entebbe, Uganda. The airline plans to expand to South Sudan, Tanzania, DRC, Comoros, and Malawi.
