Flying to Mombasa at 1.950/- Shillings? Not even walking is cheaper …


(Posted 18th August 2014)

Flying for a song comes to mind when Jambojet yesterday evening announced the sale of 5.000 seats in September at a cost of just 1.950/- Kenya Shillings, one way, all taxes included, for their destinations of Nairobi, Mombasa, Eldoret and Kisumu.

While bookings must be done between the 19th and 21st of August travel can take place at any date in September and as was the case with past such campaigns, tech savvy travelers will no doubt be on their computers at the stroke of midnight when the 19th of August comes knocking to book and take advantage of the deal, which will sell like hot cakes. Going by the current rate of the Kenya Shilling versus the US Dollar a traveler will pay a mere 23 US Dollars for a sector and can then take advantage, at least in Mombasa, Eldoret and Kisumu, of airline shuttle busses at a nominal fee to reach the city centre from the respective airports.

Jambojet has of late also started to offer deals with coast based beach resorts which should be making for great value for a weekend getaway to Mombasa. Various payment options exist by using mobile money or credit / debit cards as outlined on the airline’s website.

Fully owned by national airline Kenya Airways is Jambojet the country’s first true LCC, operating a fleet of 3 B737-300’s in an all economy configuration. It launched flights on the the 01st of April and has since then become one of Kenya’s aviation success stories in terms of passengers uplifted though no details about its financial performance have been published as yet.
