Jambojet adds five flights on Nairobi-Eldoret route

Jambojet has added five weekly flights between Nairobi and Eldoret in what the low-cost carrier says is a response to increased passenger demand on the route.


Jambojet airline will now operate 18 weekly flights from its base at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) using two Bombardier Q400 aircraft, it said in a statement.

Jambojet, which also operates two Boeing 737-300 aircraft, earlier this month suspended its daily flights to Lamu, saying that Manda Airport is in poor condition. The carrier has now channeled the extra capacity to Eldoret.

Jambojet has been operating morning and evening flights on the route, but it has now added an afternoon flight (departing Nairobi at 12.30pm) on Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

The carrier also used to operate one flight on Sundays – departing Nairobi and Eldoret at 6.50pm and 8pm respectively – but has a second flight leaving JKIA at 1pm with the return flight scheduled for 2.10pm.
