Jambojet, a Kenyan low-cost airline and a subsidiary of Kenya Airways, has launched a direct flight to Goma, Eastern of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The airline will be flying two times a week that is on Monday and Friday, from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Goma International Airport. Meanwhile, when the demand grows, the number will increase to four weekly.
According to the Jambojet Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Karanja Ndegwa, flying to Goma is one step towards growing Jambojet’s footprint in Africa.
“We are excited about the growth prospects in the region. We have an ambitious plan to grow our network, and we are proud to be the first low-cost airline to venture into this route,” said Karanja during the inaugural flight ceremony at Goma International Airport.
Jambojet Board of Directors Chairman Vincent Rague said, “Our ethos has always been offering affordable, convenient and reliable service to customers, and that in turn contributes to economic growth, job creation and boosts social inclusion.”
Jambojet also flies to Kenyan towns, including Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret, Malindi, Diani, and on Wednesday, September 15, it will commence operations to the coastal Island of Lamu.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
