Jambojet to Fly Back to Lamu After Runway Upgrade



Jambojet has rescinded their decision to suspend its flights to Lamu. This follows an announcement by Kenyan Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) that the repair works on the runway had been completed and Jambojet is now allowed to use the full runway in Manda Airstrip.


The move by Jambojet to introduce the circular flights will certainly boost the resurgent tourism sector considering that Lamu is an important attraction forming part of the coastal tourism circuit. In 2015, the Island which is listed among the UNESCO World Heritage sites hosted over 20,000 visitors.


Currently, Jambojet flies the Bombardier Dash-8Q400 aircraft which carries 78 passengers on the Lamu route. It launched flights to the coastal archipelago famous as a tourist attraction in March last year and has since seen passenger numbers rise despite the capacity limitations. During the past period the total number of passenger travelling to Lamu went up by 71% compared to the previous year.


Jambojet, recorded a 17% jump in passenger numbers for the nine months ended December compared to the same period in 2014, buoyed by the introduction of various new routes including Lamu.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
