Jambojet opens campaign to encourage domestic travel

Nairobi, Kenya (PANA) - Regional low-cost carrier Jambojet has partnered with various players in the travel industry to launch a campaign to encourage domestic travel, an official source said here Thursday.

The campaign, dubbed “Now Travel Ready”, is part of the airline strategy to encourage air travel as the country begins its coronavirus recovery process.

“With the launch of this campaign, we want to show our customers the new normal of travel,” said Jambojet Head of Sales & Marketing Titus Oboogi.

Jambojet has partnered with hotels in the five destinations they fly to, including  hotels in the coast and western regions.

Jambojet resumed operations to five local destinations in July after the Kenyan government lifted the ban of movement in and out of Nairobi, Mombasa, and Mandera counties.

Last week, the airline announced entry into charter operations to address emerging consumer needs and diversify its product offering.

The airline, launched in April 2014, became the only low cost carrier in Kenya to be awarded the coveted IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA registration) in July 2019.

IOSA is an internationally recognised and accepted evaluation system designed to assess the safety, operational management and control systems of an airline.

In August 2018, Jambojet was ranked top airline in Africa with the youngest fleet by global aviation intelligence provider, ch-aviation.
