Kenya’s first low cost airline, Jambojet, has introduced a tool on its website to help customers find the lowest fares on offer. The “low fare finder” functionality will make it possible for travellers to see which days during the month of travel have the best rates. For those who are flexible on their travel dates, this makes an excellent source for finding cheap air fares and saving.
It allows customers to see a wider range of fare options and the offer days at a glance compared to other systems that require travelers to search each day to find this information. This gives access to wider range of cheaper fares and is time saving.
“We are glad to be the first airline in Kenya to offer this valuable functionality. This service is a demonstration of our quest to always offer easy and affordable travel options to as many Kenyans as possible,” said Jambojet Chief Executive Officer Willem Hondius. “In order to access the lowest airfares available, we encourage travellers to plan ahead. By organizing a trip early, one is able to take advantage of our affordable rates, which start at Ksh 2950,” he added.
Jambojet pioneered the concept of a budget airline in Kenya four months ago and the service has already attracted good uptake. Jambojet fares include a 10 kilogram hand baggage allowance and the fares shown on the website are the actual fares that travellers pay. Passengers who require additional services have the option of paying for these as indicated at the time of booking.
Jambojet is the only airline in Kenya that gives travellers the freedom to manage their costs. Last month, Jambojet was considered best low –cost carrier for the region during the World Airlines Awards and the fourth-best in Africa, hot on the heels of such established players as Mango, Fastjet and Kulula.
