JamboJet is set to take to the skies again on 15th July after being on ground since mid-April due to Government directives on cessation of movement in some parts of the country. The airline will operate 3 daily flights to Mombasa, 2 to Kisumu, 2 to Eldoret, 1 to Malindi and 4 weekly flights to Diani. These frequencies will be reviewed regularly to respond to the changes in demand across the markets.
The regional airline is obviously following street safety protocols seeing that the pandemic is still with us. The protocols have been developed by the Ministry of Transport with best practices on how the country can start operating again without increasing the risk of the pandemic getting out of hand.
These are measures that aviation Jambojet authorities have developed in conjunction with the Government of Kenya to ensure a safe environment for customers and crew. The measures are therefore in line with the Protocols for Air Travel that were developed by the Ministry of Transport, The Kenya Airports Authority and other Aviation players.
Aviation players are required to observe the highest levels of safety and wellbeing of customers and staff and JamboJet has these in check. The measures that the airline is taking include thorough sanitization of aircraft with industry approved disinfectants before and after each flight. Additionally, the aircrafts have been fitted with High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filtration system that refresh the air every 3 minutes.
All passengers and crew will be required to wear a face mask throughout the journey. Additionally, temperature checks will be done on arrival at the airport and hand sanitizers will be provided at all customer touch points.
