Budget airline, Jambojet, has suspended all its scheduled flights to and from Kigali, Rwanda and Entebbe, Uganda, following a decline in the number of international travellers, caused by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.
Therefore, the airline says all affected passengers will be booked in alternative flights.
However, the airline continues to fly to local destinations, i.e, Malindi, Ukunda, Mombasa, Kisumu and Eldoret.
Although Uganda has not reported any confirmed cases of the virus, Rwanda already has seven confirmed cases.
Sokodirectory reports that in Africa, airlines are estimated to have lost more than KSh1.5 trillion due to flight cancellations. Already, Kenya Airways reported a loss of $8 million as a result of suspending flights on the Nairobi – Guangzhou route.
