The Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) has granted regional low-cost carrier, Jambojet, a three year license to operate in seven new African countries. The license allows Jambojet to fly to Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Dar-es-Salaam, Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza (Tanzania), Kigali (Rwanda), Jubba, Hargeisa, Mogadishu (Somalia), Goma, Kisangani (Democratic Republic of Congo), Moroni (Union of the Comoros) and Lilongwe and Blantyre (Malawi) from the hub at JKIA.
“This is an application we make to KCAA every year on the routes we intend to operate as we endeavour to increase our presence in the African region. Once we receive the required rights to each of these destinations, we shall be ready to begin operations. We are thankful for the confidence KCAA has shown in Jambojet,” said Jambojet CEO, Mr. Allan Kilavuka.
Currently, the airline flies to three African destinations namely: Entebbe, Uganda, Blantyre, Malawi and Bujumbura, Burundi.
“We have an ongoing expansion programme and we will announce when we are ready to fly to these destinations,” Mr. Kilavuka said.
