#Jambojet appoints new CEO

WILLEM HONDIUS TO EXIT JAMBOJET AS NEW CEO APPOINTED

(Posted 27th November 2018)

Willem Hondius is leaving Jambojet after five years at the helm and steering the airline through often turbulent times.
Starting with an inventory of two Boeing B737-300’s leased from parent company Kenya Airways and just two initial routes from Nairobi to Kisumu and Nairobi to Mombasa did Jambojet gradually expand their network and change their aircraft type to also serve such airports and airfields like Ukunda, Malindi, Eldoret and more recently Entebbe.

An all Bombardier Q400 fleet – four more aircraft are on order through leasing companies and due for delivery in 2019 and 2020 – now serves the Jambojet destinations in Kenya and Uganda, with more regional destinations to follow.
The new CEO, Allan Kilavuka, joins the airline from General Electric Africa and will take over in January next year, just five weeks from now.

More recently has Burundi thrown a spanner into the Jambojet expansion drive when they rejected the use of the all economy class cabin in the Bombardier Q400, prompting suggestions of political bias as Air Tanzania flies the same aircraft type without hindrance from Dar es Salaam to Bujumbura.
