Regional low-cost carrier Jambojet, has opened ticket sales to Kigali ahead of its anticipated November 25, maiden flight to the Rwandan capital. The service will launch a day after the start of services to Mogadishu on November 24.
A Kenya Airways subsidiary, Jambojet secured regulatory approve for the service last month. The carrier which will operate a daily service between Nairobi and Kigali has announced a promotional fare of USD 107 one way.
The launch of Kigali brings to three the number of regional destinations Jambojet serves out of its Nairobi base. These are in addition to six domestic destinations. The carrier also operates services to Juba and Bujumbura on behalf of Kenya Airways.
“The new route to Kigali is part of our regional expansion programme bringing the total number of our international routes in the continent to three, with the exception to those we fly to on behalf of Kenya Airways, and a total of 9 routes in the Jambojet network.” said Allan Kilavuka, Chief Executive Officer, Jambojet.
Jambojet currently flies to destinations within Kenya including Mombasa, Malindi, Ukunda (Diani), Kisumu, and Entebbe, Uganda – from its hub in Nairobi. The Nairobi-Mogadishu route is set to start operations from Sunday November 24th.
