Jambojet Passengers Grow By 123%

The number of passengers on the low-cost carrier Jambojet climbed by 390,000 last year as the industry rebounded from the Covid-19 outbreak. 

In contrast to 2020, when there were just 317,000 passengers, the airline reported a total of 730,000 during the year under review.

Speaking to the local media, Jambojet’s CEO Karanja Ndegwa accredited the increase in numbers to the adoption of automation and capacity building in their operations enhancing customer satisfaction.

“We have done our best to make flight costs affordable to the passengers and we keep on making efforts to promote an increased number of flights as the more you fly, the more the cost of flight goes down attracting more passengers,” Ndegwa said.

Since its launch in 2014, Jambojet, a market leader with a domestic market share of nearly 44%, has carried 4.9 million passengers. 

Flights are offered on 11 routes by the airline, with stops in Nairobi at Mombasa, Malindi, Kisumu, Ukunda (Diani), Lamu, and Goma in the Eastern DRC. 

Additionally, it travels to Lamu, Eldoret, and Kisumu from Mombasa. 

The airline plans to carry 917,000 passengers this year, with the goal of reaching one million the following year.
