The prices of tickets on Kenya’s first budget airline Jambojet have increased significantly ahead of the festive season as bookings rise.

Those booking late are paying dearly, with passengers travelling to coastal towns having to part with huge amounts to get a seat.

Ticket prices booked from December 22 to 24 have doubled on some routes compared to reservations made a month ago, while some flights are fully booked for the Christmas period.

Jambojet chief executive Willem Hondius said the airline has registered an increase in bookings this year.
