Two Year Anniversary: Jambojet Flies Young Achievers
Twenty students from Our Lady of Nazareth Primary School were flown from Nairobi to Mombasa for one day as part of Jambojet’s new sustainability program dubbed Off Chocks.
The educational trip will see the students visiting a number of interesting locations in Mombasa including the celebrated historical site, Fort Jesus and Haller Park which is renowned for environmental success.
“Off Chocks is a corporate social responsibility initiative whose objective is to provide support to students in seven counties across the country, those that Jambojet flies to” said Jambojet CEO Willem Hondius. “We identified education as the guiding pillar for our CSR efforts as we believe that investing in our children, is investing in the future of our great nation,” he further explained.
The newly launched programme will see Jambojet support the mission of the Ministry of Education of enhancing education standards in Kenya through provision of learning material, upgrading the physical infrastructure in schools as well as implementation of education programs.
“We are going above providing excellent customer service to our passengers, to delivering positive, tangible and long term impact on communities through our initiatives,” explained Hondius.
So far, two projects have been earmarked for rollout in the seven counties that the low cost carrier operates in. The counties are Nairobi, Mombasa, Lamu, Uasin Gishu, Kilifi, Kwale and Kisumu.
In the two years of operation, the no-frills low cost brand of Kenya Airways has achieved undeniable business growth; increased numbers of routes from four to seven, increased frequency of flights due to fleet expansion and having have flown over one million passengers.
