Jambojet has increased fares for five routes by at least 37 percent as demand picks up following a long spell of inactivity due to COVID-19.

Passengers plying the Kisumu, Mombasa, Eldoret, Malindi, and Diani routes will have to fork out more following upward adjustment of passenger capacity from 30 percent to 58 percent since the resumption of domestic flights in July.

Those travelling from Nairobi to Kisumu, Mombasa, Eldoret and Malindi will pay Ksh6,600 up from Ksh4,800.

“As is the practice in the airline industry and in the transport sector as a whole, our tickets are priced on demand and supply basis. When the demand is high, our prices go up,” said Jambojet’s acting managing director Karanja Ndegwa.

“Additionally if you book your ticket closer to the date of travel, the prices are significantly higher than if you book and pay months ahead. This is why we always encourage our customers to plan and book their travel well in advance,” he added.

Jambojet started accepting ticket bookings for Mombasa to Eldoret and Kisumu, Eldoret and Kisumu to Mombasa routes two weeks ago following approval from the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA).

The inaugural daily return flights from Mombasa to Kisumu and Eldoret airline will start on October 2 with an introductory fare of Ksh8,900 one way for each route.

“Customer satisfaction is at the core of our business. We continuously listen to our customers’ needs and are happy that we can now connect the Western region to the Coastal region with the introduction of these direct flights,” said Titus Oboogi, Head of Sales & Marketing, Jambojet.

After the inaugural flight, the carrier will make trips on Friday and Sunday.

The Mombasa-Eldoret and Kisumu flight will be departing from Mombasa at 13.15 to arrive in Eldoret at 15.05 and in Kisumu at 15.55.

The flight will depart Eldoret at 15.25, and from Kisumu at 16.15 to arrive in Mombasa at 18.05.
